The commerce ministry plans to build real-time data apps to monitor imports, production, and marketing to keep essential item prices consistent during the holy month of Ramadan.
A seminar was arranged at Chattogram by the Chattogram Chamber of Commerce & Industry (CCCI), conducted at the World Trade Centre in Chattogram to monitor the market and prices during Ramadan.
At a seminar in Chattogram, the Director-General of the Directorate of the National Consumer Rights Protection, AHM Shafiquzzaman, said, “The government is strictly monitoring at all levels aiming to keep the supply regular and prices stable.” He also added that monitoring is being conducted at the mill level.
Business representatives also participated in the meeting and stated that to continue the flow of goods in the market at a certain price level, the government should maintain an uninterrupted supply chain from millers to wholesale and retail levels. Additionally, market monitoring should be maintained strictly, sales and purchase prices should be displayed in every store.
AHM Shafiquzzaman assured that if the Chattogram port and Khatunganj wholesale market operates normally, no problem should arise regarding the supply and prices of goods.
