SMB announces price reduction on more items


This the fourth list of price reductions announced by the Seychelles Marketing Board in two weeks, after President James A. Michel announced in his National Day Address on June 18 that he had instructed SMB to revise downwards the prices of goods it imported.

One of the preoccupations of President Michel is the implementation of measures to lower the cost of living. He wants SMB to return to its original role of anchoring prices and ensuring the availability of essential commodities.

There will be a new price reduction exercise in September, as announced in the National Day Address. Further drop in prices will accompany the lowering of trades tax in January 2005.
