The Macedonian Minister of Economy KreshnikBekteshi announced that the prices of rice and eggs will be frozen as of Tuesday. As the minister said at a press conference, sugar and flour will not be intervened by freezing, because there is already a breakdown in them and that trend is expected to continue. Bekteshi did not say specifically at what price the freeze will be, but it is certain that it will not be today, but from another previous day in March.
According to Bekteshi, the prices of eggs are currently the lowest compared to other countries in the region. He said he expects the prices of sugar and flour to fall on their own, but if this does not happen by traders, by the end of this week or the beginning of next week there will be further decisions on the prices of these products.
