Fruits and vegetables prices keep soaring

Each day, a new concern is added to the problems of Lebanese citizens. He is surprised by the prices of vegetables and fruits today, since agricultural items have become a luxury for most Lebanese families, who purchase them “by pill.”

What is the reason for the continuous rise in the prices of vegetables and fruits? To answer this question, the president of the Lebanese Farmers Association, Antoine Howayek, joined us.

According to those concerned, the agenda of the penultimate session is dense, as it includes forty-nine items, including a book of conditions for launching the postal service bidding and related documents. The terms of reference have been amended based on the observations made by the Audit Bureau.

According to sources for Sawt Beirut International, the Minister of Communications, Johnny Al-Qarm, will ask the government to allow the launch of a tender in the management of tenders and to extend the current operator until the end of the year, based on his conviction that the current financial conditions of the Lebanese state, may not encourage the participation of any foreign investor in this sector, so he will leave the current operator until the end of the year, in the hope that the financial situation will improve.
