PM Karen Karapetyan instructs to review gas and electricity tariffs for vulnerable families

Newly-appointed Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan has instructed the State Revenue Commission to ensure the unconditional implementation of tax regulations by major manufacturers and importers.

Speaking at the first Government sitting he chaired, Karen Karapetyan stressed the importance of carrying out tax inspections exceptionally at entities considered risky, and to refer to small and medium-sized enterprises in extreme cases. He urged to exclude the possible biased behavior of tax inspectors and ensure transparency.

The Prime Minister also instructed the Public Services Regulatory Commission, the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources and the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs to hold joint discussions and submit proposals on the review of gas and electricity tariffs. He called to maximally reduce the prices for socially vulnerable layers of society.
