HA NOI — The capital city has decided to take processed foods and sugar and notebooks off the city's price stabilisation programme.


The municipal Department of Industry and Trade said the decision was due to an abundant supply of these goods over the three years since the programme began.

This year, the city set aside VND318 billion (US$15.14 million) for its price stabilisation programme, which included seven goods: rice, pork, poultry, eggs, frozen seafood, cooking oil and vegetables.

Enterprises will be given interest-free advances to keep these goods' prices down. — VNS
