What is created with sugar? Today unless laziness prevents to write to journalists about factory "Букурия" problems. Ministries of Economics, Минсельхозпищепром with might and main blow about absence of problems with sugar, but «Букурия» persistently costs on the - the price for sweets in Moldova on 40 % more expensively, than in Ukraine and we cannot compete. A problem in sugar, on it manufacturers of sweets insist. At an extraordinary session past Friday in the Ministry of Agriculture on which there was a financial director and the head for joint-stock company "Букурия" purchases, and also representatives of joint moldo-German company Südzucker - Moldova and License chamber, the Minister of Agriculture and the food-processing industry Vasily Bumakov has declared, that the largest confectionery factory of the country will not suspend the work on September, 5th what the day before declared joint-stock company "Букурия" management, and will receive necessary volume of sugar for continuation of work of the enterprise. Thus it has not explained the reason of so not ordinary act of manufacturers of a sweet product. They, government officials practically all levels of a ruling horizontal with might and main try to convince through mass-media of citizens of the country, that no problem is present, as there is no also a deficiency of sugar. But if the is the truth then why they, in person Minselhozpishcheproma and republic Ministries of Economics, whether in the middle of August hardly in an emergency order made the decision to import in Moldova of 4,5 thousand tons of sugar? And where those stocks of the sweet raw materials have got to, which else recently were in the country after cleaning of a quite good last year's crop of a sugar beet? Most likely, production was selfishly and is favourably exported by domestic manufacturers of sugar whom, despite protectionist measures of the Moldavian government (the VAT for sugar manufacture still makes 8 % instead of 20 % as at other economic agents), problems of our confectionery industry are alien.
