Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,

Today, I led a meeting on fulfillment of public basic necessities, particularly matters related to the national availability of cooking oil.

During the meeting, I decided that the Government will ban exports of cooking oil raw materials and cooking oil starting Thursday, April 28, 2022 until further notice.

I will continue to monitor and evaluate the implementation of this policy so that there is abundant supply of cooking oil at an affordable price.

I thank you.

Wassalamu’alaikum warrahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
