At the beginning of yesterday’s meeting of government Karen Karapetyan instructed the relevant agencies to work towards review of the tariffs of gas and electricity.

He instructed the Public Services Regulatory Commission, the acting ministers of energy and natural resources, labor and social affairs to organize joint discussions and submit proposals on the review of gas and electricity price policy.

“What do you mean minimizing the tariff for those at risk at the expense of other consumers is logical? It is necessary to ensure the encouraging impact of tariffs for entrepreneurs, namely agriculture and processing industries,” Karen Karapetyan said.

He noted that this should not be done at the expense of the treasury but at the expense of the economic operators that provide those services.
