Belarus will raise prices for partners in the customs union

Minsk will gradually raise prices for consumer goods to the level of Russia and Kazakhstan - partners of Belarus in the Customs Union. This was announced today at a press conference in Minsk by the director of the pricing policy department of the Ministry of Economy of Belarus Igor Fomin. The official promised that the alignment of prices will be gradual.

“If we go into a single economic space, without customs borders, there can be no priori price dispersion. It can be within the transport component, so that there is no sense in exporting it, ”Igor Fomin quotes RBC. According to the official, the liberalization of pricing will continue, although state regulation of prices will be partially preserved, in particular with respect to utilities, natural monopolies, essential goods, and also socially significant products. Recall, earlier, the Belarusian government adopted a resolution expanding the list of socially significant goods that may be subject to price regulation for up to 90 days.

At the same time, Belarus decided to unfreeze prices for socially significant goods. “We do not refuse point impact on prices, we do not exclude such an opportunity for certain social goods. But it will not be permanent, it will be temporary, with monitoring the situation on the consumer market, ”said Igor Fomin. The official also noted that the introduction in June of restrictions on the export of motor fuel and a number of products and goods outside the republic was a “temporary measure” due to the sharp devaluation of the Belarusian ruble.

Recall, from May 24, the National Bank of the country was forced to devalue the national currency: the official dollar exchange rate rose immediately by 56%, from 3155 to 4930 Belarusian rubles, and the national currency formally fell by 36% against the dollar. A landslide devaluation in Belarus caused a significant decrease in incomes of Belarusian citizens, writes retailer.ru
