KUALA LUMPUR: The government plans to gazette a total of 30 items under the implementation of the Festive Season Maximum Price Scheme (SHMMP) throughout the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration.
Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub said the matter will be discussed comprehensively with all industry players, especially those involved in the supply of raw materials, controlled goods and essential items.
He said it has also been suggested that the SHMPP implementation period is from seven days before, two days during and seven days after Hari Raya Aidilfitri, adding that it will be announced next week.
"This is to enable the community to spend to celebrate Aidilfitri later,” he said when winding up the debate on the royal address at Dewan Negara Tuesday (March 28).
Previously, the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Cost of Living (KPDN) had gazetted a total of eight types of goods for the implementation of the SHMMP for the 2023 Chinese New Year from Jan 15-29. - Bernama
