The ministry is currently pursuing the project of implementing 5 regional wholesale markets, the first of which was launched in the province of Ouargla by  the company of establishment and management of wholesale markets for vegetables and fruits “Magro”, the second in the province of Bechar and the third, which has an advanced rate of completion, in Tiaret in cooperation with the province.
