“The Head of State has set the task of ensuring the uninterrupted supply of citizens with food and essential goods. Given the current situation, it is necessary to quickly respond and take measures to provide the market with food,” Mamin said.

The ministries of finance and trade were instructed to work out the issue of lifting import duties on socially significant food products to saturate the domestic market. At the same time, ensure compliance with phytosanitary and veterinary control of imported goods.

The Head of Government instructed akimats of the regions to allocate additional funds from local budgets for the formation of regional stabilization funds of food products.

The prime minister instructed to approve the decision-making procedure on crossing the state border for the period of emergency, as well as take measures to ensure the sanitary and epidemiological safety of transit transport.
