The cost of bread has been reduced in Uzbekistan since September 17.
The cost of a loaf of bread decreased from 1,200 soums to 1,050 soums. Earlier, since September 15 the cost of a loaf of bread has almost doubled from 650 to 1,200 soums, which caused discontent among the citizens.
Such price fluctuations are caused by the fact that since September 15 Uzbekistan has introduced a new order of selling bread at a free market price, formed on the basis of supply and demand.
To avoid price hikes, a single price for wheat flour of grade 1 was set at 1,400 soums per kilogram.
Later, after the country passes the period of adaptation to the new order of selling bread, flour is also planned to be sold at a market price. (Trend/Business World Magazine)
