The induction cookers, to replace the gas within the government’s project that targets the subsidy Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in 2016, would be revealed on Wednesday, November 6, during a meeting between the Minister of Industries, Ramiro Gonzalez, and business representatives appliances.
That is the expectation that the Ecasa manager, Mario Espinosa has, adding that the issues are being analysed by the standard Ecuadorian Standardization Institute (INEN). “It will define the price of the industry and the government will give us the final guidelines,” said Espinosa.
Yesterday Minister Gonzalez said that the change of cookers would last three years. “We meet almost every 15 days, on Wednesday we have another meeting, and we made the proposal of a model (induction cooker) with a price, but we said it was still quite high, so this week we will have another proposal from them,” said the government official.
Espinosa said that in late December, Ecasa will present its proposals to the market regarding a published price, as well as the models that consist of a 25% national component. If a electronic card supplier is found, the national parties would increase from 35 to 40 %.
