Ilir Meta warns of "black days" for Albanians: Beans will cost 6 thousand lek a kilo

Ilir Meta warns of "black days" for Albanians: Beans will cost 6

The head of the Freedom Party, Ilir Meta, has warned of a further increase in the prices of agricultural products during the coming year, and this, according to him, is due to the many problems that this sector has. Meta made his comments yesterday through a statement to the media, where he said that according to INSTAT, during the first half of this year, there was an 11% increase in food products, where according to him, a kilogram of beans cost 600 new lek and a liter olive oil 1 thousand new lek. He criticized the way the Economy and Finance Committee approved the budget of 7 billion euros in 20 minutes during an online meeting. "The Economy Commission approved online in 22 minutes the new fiscal package and the new budget of over 7 billion euros. The new fiscal package will only have negative effects on the economy, because it increases the fiscal base. A very strong shot is given to the professionals. This budget, as we have emphasized, reduces social expenses.

The pension increase fund will be 2.1%. No funds are provided for the support of the poorest classes. Spending on PPPs will increase by 10%, at a time when most of them are under investigation. I would point out the financing of Agriculture which is scandalous, as it worsens, shrinking from 0.7% to 0.6%. I also want to underline the risk to the finances of Albanian consumers, which is the double-digit increase in agricultural prices. These are at the center of the concerns of the needy classes. Experts say that this increase will continue", he declared. Meta further emphasized that the basic products have undergone a great increase. "The country is facing a lack of labor force and other problems.

In the period January August 2023, food increased by 11%, so much so that even the most basic products have experienced a very strong increase, such as beans up to 600 new lek, or the doubling of olive oil up to 1 thousand new lek. We are dealing with the devaluation of the euro. Euro continues to be in a depreciating position for 15 days. The increase in prices is expected to be even more critical in the coming months. It is not the opposition that blocked the Parliament, but the government that captured it and turned it into a notary and the opposition is fighting for the Parliament to be unblocked. You also followed the EC report that spoke about the Parliament's relationship with the government, about the capture that the government has made of the Parliament", underlined Meta.
