Cairo Governor Khaled Abdel Aal made a sudden tour of inspection of the consumer complexes, markets, and bakeries in the Zaiton neighborhood to follow up on commodity prices.
During his tour, the governor met some beneficiaries of ration cards who assured the availability of high-quality commodities at affordable prices, unlike other market prices.
Furthermore, the governor urged intensifying inspection campaigns on subsidized bread bakeries to ensure bread quality, weight, and conformity to specifications.
The governor said that within days more than 100 outlets selling commodities would be established as a collaborative effort between Cairo governorate and Cairo Chamber of Commerce across Cairo to offer citizens goods at competitive prices.
Moreover, the governor emphasized that many outlets would be available to sell goods at wholesale prices, especially in the neediest neighborhoods.
The governor reiterated that the executive bodies of the Cairo governorate constantly follow up on the availability of all commodities at affordable prices and monitor market prices to prevent commercial fraud and price manipulation, adding that authorities will take necessary legal actions against violators.
The governor was accompanied by Deputy Cairo Governor Hossam El-Din Fawzy, Director of Supply Directorate Abdel Naeem Hamed, and several officials of Cairo governorate.
