Moncloa works to contain the price of food with “several measures”


With the end of the year just around the corner, and what is the same as the end of the term of the economic measures that the Government launched to contain inflation in the face of the war in Ukraine, uncertainty is growing as to whether the Executive will maintain some of these measures such as the fuel discount or there will be modifications in many of them. Given this expectation, the First Vice President of the Government and Minister of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, Nadia Calviño, has assured this Friday that the Government works “in different measures in the field of food” to contain their prices.

Calviño, in statements to Galician Television collected by Europa Press, stressed that the Government is analyzing which of the measures adopted to contain inflation are extended beyond December 31 and which ones are additionally needed to contain prices in the field of food.

Although he has not revealed exactly what the Executive is considering to curb the cost of the shopping basket, Calviño has insisted, in any case, that “the most important thing, and what gives the most peace of mind” gives families and to the citizens, it is to improve their salary income and that the Spanish economy continues to grow and create jobs.

Among the measures that the Government is studying to extend, but with changes, is the bonus of 20 cents euro per liter of fuel, which will be applied generally until December 31. At this point, Calviño has indicated that “Perhaps” this measure should be limited to the most affected sectors due to the rise in fuel prices, among whom he has cited transporters, fishermen, farmers and ranchers.

After recalling that the package of initiatives to contain inflation has mobilized more than 30,000 million euros of public resources, the vice president has stated that the Government is carrying out the analysis of these measures “with rigor, seriousness and responsibility” and “with good results”, since “inflation has dropped four points in four months and is already below the European average “, he highlighted. Calviño has also highlighted that The Spanish economy continues to grow and create employment “strongly” and hopes that the year can end “with that dynamism and that positive sign”.
