The former official made this request as an alternative to finance the gasoline subsidy for taxi drivers that the Government will provide as an agreement to meet the costs they are assuming.
What Ocampo is concerned about is that the resources from the Fuel Price Stabilization Fund or the 2024 General Budget of the Nation will be used to finance the subsidy.
