INDUSTRY.co.id - Pandeglang - Pandeglang Regent, Banten Province, Irna Narulita asks traders in traditional markets not to raise the price of goods casually, especially for basic needs.

"Yesterday did sidak to Pasar Rhino, to monitor the condition of the price of basic needs, there is an increase but still reasonable," he said in Pandeglang, Monday (25/12/2017).

At the sidak to the largest traditional market in Pandeglang District, the regent visited the seller of basic necessities such as rice, cooking oil, market sugar, eggs, meat and vegetables.

"The goods are so needed by the community to be a focus in our monitoring," she said.

Head of Department of Industry, Trade and Energy Mineral Resources Andi Kusnardi said that the increase in the price of basic commodities is still within the limits of reasonableness.
