The government is currently working towards increasing people's purchasing power, Astro Awani
Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad told the news portal that the government has several measures to realise that plan.
"I think in the future, prices may not go down, but what we want to do is to increase your purchasing power.
"The Ringgit is now below its value, so the cost of goods has increased. There are many ways to approach this problem, not just give out money," he reportedly said.
Dr Mahathir also said the government is aware of the high cost of living and escalating prices, and the government is working to alleviate the burden of the people by lowering the cost of living and the price of goods.
The first Economic Action Council (EAC) meeting in March this year was in line with the initiate with two of its agenda focusing on tackling the rising cost of living.
