The Minister of Agriculture, Limber Cruz, affirmed that most of the problems this organization faces related to the rise in prices of the basic staples in the grocery basket are natural phenomena and “inheritance” of the lack of planning of the previous government.
Cruz assured that in the areas, if necessary, the increase in prices will be controlled through imports.
Likewise, the minister affirmed that food security is guaranteed.
“Our responsibility is to guarantee food security, and we are doing it,” he added.
The minister spoke at a press conference in which it was announced that the programs “Mobile Warehouses” will be doubled from this Friday to bring cheap products to the neighborhoods.
Ivan Hernandez, director of the Institute of Price Stabilization (Inespre), added that the “idea” is to bring products regularly to the Dominican population, focusing mainly on housewives.
