Ministry of Coconut Development

This is it, folks! My colleague, Thoshanka, doesn’t understand why I think it’s fabulous that Sri Lanka has a Ministry of Coconut Development. It’s the most natural thing in the world to her. And consider how abundant this natural resource is, here: it really does make sense. I think what tickles me is that it’s its own ministry – it doesn’t just fit in under something broader, like, say, Agriculture.
