Executive Council Co-Chairs tour bakeries and mills of Zalin (Qamishli)

NORTH AND EAST SYRIA — The Co-Chairs of the Executive Council of North and East Syria, Nazeera Koreya and Talaat Younes, made an emergency tour of bakeries and mills in Zalin (Qamishli) to see the progress of work and the quality of the flour and bread following numerous complaints.

During the tour, directions were given to improve the quality of the bread. The factory furnaces are in need of comprehensive maintenance. Emphasis was also placed on the need to adhere to the specified ratios for mixing corn to fill the deficit, to follow up on work by administrators, and to hold employees accountable for negligent practices.

The Co-Chair of the Economic Commission reported on the approved study to support bread, that, “The cost of subsidizing flour and bread by the DAA results in a heavy loss, reaching almost 90% for every 1 ton of wheat.”
