Targeted subsidies: Avoid speculation, wait for official government announcement

KOTA BHARU: All parties are urged not to make any speculation regarding targeted subsidy programs, instead wait for the official announcement from the government, said Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) Fuziah Salleh.

She said so far there has been no announcement regarding the matter, which also denies reports from foreign media claiming that the government has decided to announce an increase in fuel prices.

“Let the announcement be made by the government itself and do not let foreign media preempt it.

In any case, we are implementing several mechanisms to prepare ourselves, so when the targeting program is implemented, we are ready.

“Among them include providing fleet card facilities for truck vehicles to enjoy diesel subsidies when the program is launched. Currently, we are actively registering companies to enable them to receive subsidies,” she told reporters at the Aidilfitri Celebration Event at KPDN Kelantan, here, today.

Meanwhile, commenting on the increase in civil service salaries which may lead to a rise in prices of goods, Fuziah said KPDNHEP would carry out monitoring and control every day to ensure that no traders take advantage of raising the prices of goods.
