The price surveillance for the wholesale and retail sectors is undertaken by the Commission on a monthly basis. This is to help the Commission track the price movement of declared goods against non-declared goods.
The Commission compares price movement at the factory gate level against the wholesale and retail prices charged to consumers. This applies to Flour, Roots Rice, and Ramu Sugar.
The price surveillance is done in Port Moresby, Kokopo, Lae, and Goroka.
