Closure of Wholesale Market in Bir El Kassâa Threatens to Raise Local Agricultural Prices Facebook () Twitter () Google+ LinkedIn () Email () PrintThe Wholesale Market of Bir KassâaOne of Tunisia’s major wholesale markets at Bir El Kassâa in the governorate of Ben Arous was closed yesterday, raising concerns for some that agricultural prices would consequently increase.The closure came as a reaction to a recent decision by the Court of First Instance in Tunis to appoint a judicial manager to take over Bir El Kassâa’s wholesale market from the labor cooperative board that is currently responsible for all regional wholesale markets.“This market is one of the most important wholesale markets.
Its closure will generate serious problems,” said Mohsen Hassen, a businessman and a professor in economics.The road to the supermarket was closed, and suppliers could not deliver their goods to the market.“This can lead to an increase in the local prices, which would in turn affect the purchasing power [of consumers],” stated Hassen.Not only will it affect consumers but agricultural producers as well.“Agricultural products need transparent venues to circulate, this can lead to harm the agricultural sector,” Hassen continued.In order to prevent such problems, regional authorities temporarily redirected agricultural suppliers to the town of M’Hamdia in Ben Arous governorate so as to maintain regularity of commercial activities, Tunisian radio Shems FM reported.TAP also reported that members of the labor board had been in a difficult financial situation as they had not been paid for more than two weeks.
