Government will regulate prices of coal. The corresponding decree of the Cabinet was submitted for public discussion.
Wholesale prices for coal mining enterprises are controlled by the State Antimonopoly Committee. But solid fuel comes to final consumer through many resellers.
Having a wholesale price of 5,400 soms, the cost of coal in retail reaches 7-8,000.
The results of monitoring of the average retail market price for coal over the past month have shown its increase by more than 20 percent. The coal is included in the government's list of socially important goods.
For successful completion of the heating season 2016/2017, the government plans to introduce state regulation of prices for coal on the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic for three months.
