Azerbaijani government will make every effort to prevent the rise in food prices as a result of devaluation of the national currency, Azerbaijani MP Rufat Guliyev told Trend Dec.21.
Today, it is difficult to say how the devaluation will affect the prices, he said.
The products manufactured on Azerbaijan’s territory shouldn’t rise in price, said the MP, adding that manat’s devaluation can and will affect the imported goods.
The main task is to keep the prices for food products, housing services and transport, so that this situation wouldn’t so strongly affect the population’s welfare, according to Guliyev.
It will affect the inflation, price rise and the goods imported to the country, he added.
