The government announced, after a three and a half hours metting with members of the National Federation of Bakers (FENAPAN for its Spanish acronym) at the Ministry of Agriculture, that the price of common bread is going to remain at $ 0.12 until further notice.
The announcement came since last Tuesday members of FENAPAN threatened to raise the price of common bread from $ 0.12 to $ 0.18, if in the afternoon of the same day, an agreement with the Government was not reached.
After the meeting, Pedro Miranda, head of FENAPAN, indicated that there was no resolution and that they fulfilled their mission by presenting their proposals.
“It was just one more meeting. No government proposals, “said Miranda. (MZ)
