Prices of 500 products to be reduced from today
Qatar’s Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) has issued a list of more than 500 commodities that will be sold at reduced prices on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, reported Gulf Times.
These consumer goods will be available at reduced prices starting today until the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The initiative will be particularly helpful as spending on food purchases is increasing.
The Ministry has slashed the prices of several commodities including milk, meat and honey, reported Qatar Tribune.
The discounted consumer goods initiative is the latest in a series of welfare programmes rolled out by the ministry under the slogan #lessthanduty to mark the holy month of Ramadan. As part of the programme, the monthly ration of sugar and milk for citizens has already been increased.
The initiative, like in previous years, is aimed at easing the burden on citizens and residents as they undertake an arduous spiritual pursuit in the holy month.
All commodities consumed by people during the holy month have been included in the list. They include flour, sugar, rice, pasta, oil, milk, and other food and non-food items of importance to the consumer.
The list of reduced prices has been circulated among all major retail outlets in the country. Consumers can also view the list on the ministry’s website and at all the ministry’s social networking sites.
