DTI monitoring continues
after lifting of price freeze

The Department of Trade and Industry will continue to monitor the prices of basic goods and prime commodities, even with the lifting of the price freeze.

Rachel Nufable, director of DTI Negros Occidental, said that due to the public health emergency, the government has imposed a nationwide price freeze on essential goods for 60 days, or until May 15.

Under Republic Act 7581, or the Price Act, prices of basic goods in an area under a state of calamity are automatically frozen at prevailing prices.
