President of the Libyan Presidential Council (PC), Mohamed al-Menfi, stressed working urgently to establish an appropriate mechanism to support basic commodities, through a clear strategy, to control the prices at the local market.
This came during a meeting with the Economy Minister of the outgoing Government of National Unity (GNU), Mohamed al-Huwaij, according to PC Media Office.
Al-Menfi and Al-Huwaij discussed the controls that have been put in place to ensure the reduction of commodity prices, in coordination with the competent authorities.
Al-Menfi called for the necessity of expediting the granting of a cost-of-living allowance to citizens, to help them face the rise of prices during the fasting month of Ramadan.
For his part, the Economy Minister confirmed to al-Menfi that the ministry will take all necessary measures, in coordination with the relevant authorities, to control the rise of prices in the local market, noting that the competent committees are working on developing the best ways to ensure the flow of goods, and provide them to the consumer at reasonable prices. .
