SDF-held areas | Autonomous Administration hikes sugar price for “public interest!”

The directorate of supply and consumer protection of the Autonomous Administration has issued a decision to raise the price of sugar in regions under its control in northern and north-eastern Syria.

The decision statement, a copy of which has been obtained by the Syrian Observatory, states the following:

“According to public interest requirements and the keenness on delivering sugar to the consumer, the price has been determined by the directorate of Supply and consumer protection as follows:
1 kg: 2,850 SYL.
10 kg: 28,500 SYL.
50 kg: 142,000 SYL.”

It is worth noting that the price of one kilogram of sugar was formerly 2,200 Syrian liras.
This decision came in the light of the crisis that has hit Autonomous Administration-controlled areas due to the high prices of consumer goods. The decision also has met with widespread public resentment.

The closure of Semalka crossing border with Kurdistan region of Iraq has contributed greatly in deteriorating living conditions that has been worsened further across areas of Autonomous Administration -held areas in northern and eastern Syria. The closure has had negative repercussions in all aspects of life prompting food, health, medical and industrial shortage.
