Dominican Republic: Government will continue with the “Safe Basket” plan

The government will continue the “Safe Basket” plan in order to guarantee food for Dominicans, which will represent a relief not only to families but also to small producers.

One of the elements of this plan involves an agreement between the government, the producers and the wholesale and retail markets to guarantee the stability of prices in the products of the basic food basket.

The announcement was made yesterday by the Minister of Economy, Planning, and Development, Miguel Ceara Hatton, at the presentation of the document “Prices of foods for mass consumption in the Dominican Republic and the international scene.”

The second point of the plan establishes that the government will buy from the producers, through the Price Stabilization Institute (Inespre), the products of the basic basket to sell them to consumers through the mobile warehouses that will circulate through the streets of Greater Santo Domingo and the provinces of the country.
