The government is determined to resolve the problem of the high cost of living in the long run, Commerce Minister Niwatthamrong Bunsongphaisan said on Saturday. 

Speaking on the "Yingluck Government Meets the People" weekly programme on NBT, Mr Niwatthamrong said the Agriculture Ministry would monitor agricultural product prices from farm to table to help reduce production costs of farmers and minimise costs for consumers.

At the same time, he said, the Energy Ministry would monitor fuel and cooking gas prices, while the Commerce ministry would be responsible for marketing to ensure fair prices for essential good in the long term, he said.
