The Minister of Economy and Business Ombudsman linked the rise of bread to external factors.
Giorgi Kobulia explains that wheat prices have risen is the world market, which is reflected in Georgia.
However, the Minister said that the Ministry will keep track of the Competition Agency, which should determine whether there was a non-competitive deal.
The price of wheat has risen in the world, of course, it affects the price of our bread. I also said a few days ago: We, as a government, do not regulate the price of bread, the price of bread is commercially formulated. If the price of wheat has risen and the producer brings wheat from abroad, of course it reflects on the price. We are still looking into this issue to make sure that there is no unconventional transaction, "Giorgi Kobulia said.
