The government would be looking into possibilities to restrict importation of milk powder and provide solutions, Health Minister Pavithra Vanniarachchi said. 

The minister made this observation at Chambers in response to a question yesterday (22).

The attention has been paid in to the matter with the aim of increasing consumption of liquid milk ensuring a healthier life for people, she said. 

However, it would be inevitable that the price on milk powder would hike if importation is limited, economists warned.
