The President of the Republic, Luis Abinader, justified the increase in various basic basket products by saying that it is because the country "it does not produce" the raw material used to make those foods.

"We are an island where we do not produce raw material, that is, due to the inflation of the raw material, the impact should have been much greater and thanks to the policies that we are implementing in the case of chicken, we have 15% more production, in 15% more in the case of eggs, in all rubles, in all important areas of agricultural products, we have increased production"explained the president.

Abinader’s statements come when various sectors of society have complained about the "high prices" of the products of the basic basket, mainly plantains.

"When you look at the level of the basic basket in relation to other countries, ours has increased to a much lesser extent and that is why, according to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), we were one of two countries that the diet has improved"added the president.
