The State Trading Corporation (STC) has launched two international tenders for the import of 50,000 tons of cement and 200 metric tons of edible oil.
Recall that a first international call for tenders was made by the STC for the import of edible oil last September. This did not work because the price offered was higher than that of local importers.
The STC hopes to have more competitive prices with these two new calls for tenders.
This decision was taken after a study of the prices of these two products on the local market. Note that the rise in cement prices also precipitated the decision of the STC.
