The public authorities are currently elaborating a study to identify the mechanisms to target the subsidies to the vulnerable categories and reduce the impact of the constantly soaring prices on certain groups of the population, said, Monday, Minister of Finance Abderrahmane Raouya.

Answering PMs’ questions after a plenary session devoted to the debate on the Draft Budget Law (PLF) 2019, Mr. Raouya said that “the public authorities remain determined to adopt a social policy capable of meeting vulnerable categories.

The subsidy policy based on social transfers and direct or indirect aids will be devoted to the vulnerable categories, by reducing the negative impact of the gradual rise in prices.

“The public authorities are aware of the importance of targeting subsidies to poor and needy categories who really need effective aid, and we are studying the possibility of alleviating the progressive impact of higher prices fir these categories and preserve their purchasing power, “he said.

“Preparations for the establishment of operational, effective and objective targeting mechanisms is underway,” he said.
