Inventories of domestic and imported sugar are about 290,000 tons, sufficient to satisfy 71 days of local demand, the cabinet said today in an e-mailed statement. The government has 142,000 tons of domestic and imported food oil on hand, enough to meet consumption through the middle of May, it said.
