Tirana, December 31, 2015
The holiday season has affected in the increase of consumption and high demands for cart products but this is associated with the unfair and unreasonable increase of prices by Albanian traders. On behalf of this, the Ministry of Agriculture and its subsidiary institutions have taken measures for preventing the unfair increase of prices.
The monitoring of the markets is being made by the inspectors of the Agency for Consumers Protection in order to prevent marketers to increase the prices of products arbitrarily. According to specialists, one of the alternatives to keep fair prices for cart products is to establish alternative markets, especially in holiday seasons.
A few days ago, the Minister of Agriculture Edmond Panariti appealed to traders to not increase the prices due to the high demand for products but to apply discounts to clients.
