Mr. Khai made the request at Monday’s meeting in Hanoi on the management of prices of essential commodities - petroleum, iron, steel, fertilizer, agricultural products, and medical services and supplies.           

“Forecasts and solutions are needed to stabilize prices and keep inflation under 4% as set by the National Assembly. If we can’t control prices, all the achievements we’ve made during the economic recovery and development program will be threatened,” said Mr. Khai.

He also called for flexible operations to keep the macro-economy stable, harmonize fiscal and monetary policies, and prevent a negative impact on price controls.
