Warns that this type of decision can damage the company and the economy in the medium and long term
MADRID, 8 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation has rejected the proposal of the Second Vice President and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, to set a shopping basket for basic products with "frozen" or limited prices.
According to sources from the Ministry headed by Nadia Calviño, competition in the market should be left to work instead of agreeing with large distributors to set prices for basic products in the shopping basket. They emphasize that the important thing is not to agree, but that the competition works.
From the Department headed by Nadia Calviño they have stressed that the important thing is that the margins of the companies remain stable and that competition works so that, through greater stability in the costs that are being perceived, inflation can fall.
Thus, in the face of the proposal launched by Yolanda Díaz, from the Ministry of Economy they advocate not contributing to the current complex scenario with decisions that may seem to make sense in the short term, but that in the medium and long term harm the company and the economy.
Just this Thursday, Yolanda Díaz has stated, after her meeting with the executive director of Carrefour Spain, that the shopping basket of basic products with "frozen" or "limited" prices that she is demanding from large distribution must vary every week, include protein and fresh (fish, meat, fruit, eggs and vegetables), products for celiacs and be available to families at least until after Christmas.
