The Minister of Agriculture in encouraging news? “We will see significant price reductions in the summer”

“Increase supply”: The rise in prices that has been felt in recent months is hurting the pockets of millions of Israeli citizens. Does the field of agriculture seem to be a relief on the subject? Minister of Agriculture Oded Forer (Yisrael Beiteinu) evaluated today (Wednesday) in the program of Liat Ron on 104.5FM North Radio That in the coming months we will already be able to see results, thanks in part to the parts of the reform in the industry that went through the 2022 budget.

He first said: “The story of the Israeli market is that it needs a competition. Competition is important and critical for all products. When we decide on an Israeli standard, it is impossible to import because it does not meet the Israeli standard. The discount will roll, and we will see it in the coming months. “The fact that there is no competition creates a reality in which we pay high prices. Take for example the grapes – there is no competition. If we bring more supply, the price will go down.”

“The reform in agriculture is to open the market to competition. The downsizing will come in January. Until then, we are having a dialogue. I estimate that within three months there will be a decline.” He added: “Our reform plays an important game in market trade. We export a lot and import a little. If we import more, we will spend more shekels and see the dollar rise. The effect on prices is things that happen in the world. Our job as government is to make the market as free as possible. “As competitive as possible. Regulation should be where we see competition being harmed.”

On agricultural crime: “We will overcome the border”

On the rising agricultural crime, and the fear of economic damage to the towers, the minister promised: “Today we are passing a government decision budgeting the Border Guard to set up two more bases for civilian volunteers – one in the south and one in the north. They will strengthen the police. “

He added: “We see agricultural crime as a national mission, and I see it as a dramatic move. The Civil Guard at the time did an excellent job, and even today a great many of the police officers on duty are volunteers. It is a blessed thing, and will allow for more force.”
