PETALING JAYA - The retail price of Grade A, B, and C eggs across the country has been reduced by three cents starting on June 17 as part of the government’s new subsidy initiative.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said that the new prices for Grade A, B, and C eggs will be set at 42 cents (S$0.12), 40 cents, and 38 cents per egg, respectively.

He noted that the subsidy provision would involve government expenditure of around RM100 million, covering as much as 10 cent per egg.

“I want to emphasise that the problems or issues related to the cost of living of the people will continue to be dealt with by the Government in a more proactive and effective manner,” he said in a statement on June 17.

Retail prices for eggs in Sabah, Sarawak, and Labuan will be adjusted according to the respective zones and districts, according to Mr Anwar. THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK
