Malacanang has announced that various government agencies will start releasing weekly price monitoring charts via the Internet to serve as guide for consumers regarding prices of basic commodities and goods.
The Department of Energy (DOE), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Department of Health (DOH) developed the project in collaboration with the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO), according to Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail during an interview aired government-run dzRB Radyo ng Bayan on Saturday.
?The five agencies and departments agreed to release a weekly price monitoring chart to be uploaded online para mapakita ang mga changes sa prices, if any, ng mga basic goods and commodities,? Valte said.
Valte noted the DTI, through its regional and provincial offices, regularly monitors the prices of basic and prime commodities. The department also releases its price watch regularly.
With the new joint project, the public will be regularly updated of the prices of medicines as well.
?Gumawa na ng information graphic mula sa mga ahensyang nabanggit. So we now have one document in one site instead of multiple sites para ma-access ng mas maraming tao,? she said.
