Govt assures to keep inflation rate low and manageable
Jun 30, 2022
The government has assured it will work to keep the inflation rate in Malaysia low and manageable, to ensure the wellbeing of the people.
It says its newly set up task force will not only focus on the price of chicken, eggs, and cooking oil, but all prices of goods and services that could contribute to the increase in the inflation rate.

However, it assures that authorities will take the necessary action to ensure adequate supply.
