He noted in a statement that the holy month usually witnesses a rise in consumption and shopping, which, he said, necessitates that “curfew hours be slashed the working hours of malls, shopping centers and restaurants be extended, following the example of many countries”.

This should be coupled with strict observance of precautionary health measures and monitoring of shopper’s commitment to these protocols, the sector leader said, also urging intensive awareness messages to the public in this regard.
