Consumers should expect an increase in the prices of fruits and vegetables in the coming weeks due to floods in Johor.
These floods have left many farms submerged, affecting at least 30% of vegetable supply in the market.

We hear from Dr Sarena Che Omar, Deputy Director of Research at the Khazanah Research Institute.
