    Enfrentan precios especulativos en Ciego de Ávila

    To reinforce the implementation of popular control strategies to reduce the prices of food, services and essential products, urged the highest authorities of the territory during the Provincial Council of Government corresponding to the month of July.

    The governor, Tomás Alexis Martín Venegas, pointed out the need to continue the dialogue with producers, transporters and marketers to achieve an understanding and sensitize them, so that they face the tendencies to obtain profits through speculative prices that affect the people.

    In the 10 municipalities, the presidents of popular councils, delegates, political and mass organizations, and representatives of all forms of production are integrated into actions of popular control, fundamentally in entities dedicated to the production and commercialization of food, referred to as Trade and Gastronomy units, he explained.

    Inspections and the operation of a price observatory have also made it possible to identify and correct abusive and speculative prices, in addition to providing opportunities for preventive work and exchange aimed at demonstrating the irrationality and negative effects of high costs in the midst of a crisis of shortage.

    As another possibility to participate in popular control and express disagreements in this regard, the Provincial Directorate of Finance and Prices maintains channels of communication, through email and telephone; in addition to those enabled in the offices of attention to the population in the ten municipalities and the Provincial Government.

    Checks in the wholesale and retail companies with the greatest impact on the population made it possible to detect difficulties associated with the permanence of outdated cost records, breaches of regulations, cost elements with poor classification, excess direct and indirect personnel, and the inappropriate use of accounting to assess actual costs.

    Supervisions continue in fairgrounds and recreational spaces destined to enjoy the summer, where irregularities are identified that demonstrate the persistence of problems and, therefore, the urgency of reinforcing the confrontation.

    In all cases, sanctions are imposed in accordance with the seriousness of the violations committed and taking into account the circumstances of the facts.

    Liván Izquierdo Alonso, first secretary of the Provincial Committee of the Party (PCC) in Ciego de Ávila, called for perfecting price controls and defending people's rights, in addition to reiterating the importance of direct dialogue with marketing actors to sensitize them.

    "Let no one lose, but neither win at the cost of the sacrifice of the working people," the also member of the Central Committee of the PCC emphasized.

    The authorities of Ciego de Ávila pointed to the urgency of increasing the production of goods and services, to ensure greater offers in the market, which will favor the drop in prices.
