Sri Lanka produced 129.04 million tonnes of tea in the first half of 2020 down 18.76 percent from a year earlier, and exported 129 million tonnes, down 14.50 percent, with Iraq, Turkey, Russia and Iran the top buyers. Sri Lanka saw production and sales disruption after a Coronavirus lockdown was imposed on March 20, but the sector gradually came back to operation as the government selectively allowed economic activity to resume.
