The country is trying to control inflation, false rumors such as rice price increase rumor in April, is unacceptable and confused many people.
The Central Steering Committee against Smuggling and Trade Fraud and the Ministry of Industry and Trade have directed that local authorities and relevant departments check and fine those who speculate in commodities or raise prices.
