As a first step, the government is announcing that the Sri Lanka Tea Board has signed a business agreement with China. Accordingly, the Ceylon Tea Board has signed an agreement with a Starchina International Trade Company Limited in China and China will buy 4 million kilos of local tea at market price for a period of 15 years, a government spokesman said. But according to a press release issued by China, they buy tea from Sri Lanka at a pre-agreed price. China further says that they are working to modernize the tea factories in Sri Lanka.
