In its fourth meeting, the Price Stability Committee vowed to fight soaring inflation rates with “new policies to achieve security of supply against excessive price hikes,” according to a statement released by the Treasury and Finance Ministry late on April 5.
The committee also decided to prepare new legal frameworks on securing agricultural product, food, energy, commodity and water supplies.
Labor and Social Security Minister Vedat Bilgin, Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Dönmez, Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank, Agriculture and Forestry Minister Vahit Kirişci, Presidential Strategy and Budget Office head İbrahim Şenel and Turkish Central Bank chief Şahap Kavcıoğlu attended the meeting chaired by Treasury and Finance Minister Nureddin Nebati.
With the new economy policies, “all stakeholders will act in coordination to fight against inflation to the end,” said Nebati in a tweet.
The finance minister also spoke during a fast-breaking, or iftar, dinner hosted by the Independent Industrialists and Businessmen’s Association (MÜSİAD) in Ankara on April 5.
