Bread Price Dilemma

Bread Price Dilemma Bread Price Dilemma

Administration officials are still at odds whether to increase the price of bread across the country, MNA reported on Sunday. Earlier, the government announced it would allow bakeries to increase the prices of all types of bread by about 30 percent as of November 22. Ten days on from the announcement, authorities are yet to come to a conclusion. According to the MNA report, officials may set different prices for the staple food in different provinces. The government has provided bakeries across the country with subsidized flour, as before, to help keep the prices unchanged. The report said an official announcement is expected in a few days.
