The government will continue to provide support for professionals in the road transport sector in August, said Wednesday in Rabat, the Minister Delegate for Relations with Parliament, Government Spokesman, Mustapha Baitas.
Reacting to questions from journalists at a press briefing held after the weekly meeting of the Governing Council, Baitas stressed that more clarification will be presented on this subject just after the announcement of new fuel prices.
According to the government official, the value of this new tranche of support for professionals in the road transport sector will be set on the basis of the new fuel prices to be announced in early August.
It should be recalled that the government had launched last March, the process of exceptional support for professionals in the road transport sector, to preserve the purchasing power of citizens in the face of soaring fuel prices.
The Ministry of Transport and Logistics had announced, at the end of June, that the government had decided to increase by 40% the value of the support granted to road transport professionals under the fourth tranche of support.
