Goking cmte to probe sugar supply shortage

COUNCILOR George S. Goking, chair of the City Council committee on trade and commerce, said his committee will look into issues relative to the shortage in the supply of sugar which has affected the production of some commodities.

Councilor Goking said he wants to hear from sugar suppliers and dealers on the matter, adding that this will result in high prices.

He stressed that an investigation is necessary to solve the problem. They should shed light on the causes of the sudden shortage of supply in the market, he added.

Reports indicate that the low supply of sugar has affected top soda producers.

The situation will affect the economy because there are also big companies that need sugar in manufacturing their products, Goking pointed out.

This problem should be given immediate attention, he stressed.
