Description
In light of sufficient local stock availabilities, decided not to suspend import duties on rice ahead of Ramadan and lean months, as was done in previous years to curb pressure on domestic prices. Instead, officials are to concentrate their efforts in raising local output by continuing assistance programs to the sector.
