“Free Gift” Support Package: A Temporary Solution, Claims Consumer Association

The PanCyprian Consumer and Quality of Life Union criticizes the government’s new support package, viewing it as a temporary solution rather than a comprehensive one. The Union raises concerns about the temporary subsidies offered, the lack of mention of gas, the inadequacy of the Photovoltaics for All Plan, and the government’s approach to tackling energy poverty. While the Union welcomes the zero VAT rate on meat and vegetables, it questions the potential effectiveness of this measure. Overall, the Union emphasizes the need for more sustainable and effective solutions to address the country’s energy and consumer issues.
