The rising prices of sugar in the domestic market have led the Kyrgyzstan government to impose a ban on the exportation of sugar. Askarbek Dzhanybekov, the Minister of Agriculture, Water Resources and Regional Development of the republic shared the information in brief.
The government is trying all the possible ways to come over the shortage of sugar in the country and lower the prices, he said.
According to the media report, Minister said, “The Prime Minister signed a decree prohibiting export of sugar and vegetable oil from the country. I think this will have a positive effect on the domestic market and on the country’s food security. To date, there is no shortage of flour, sugar, vegetable oil in the country.”
