ArmInfo. Armenian Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan compared tariffs for railway and ferry cargo services on the Moscow-Yerevan route and in the opposite direction, and concluded that they had declined. Prime Minister of Armenia Karen Karapetian stated this on his Facebook page.
According to the Prime Minister, earlier the transportation of goods through the territory of Georgia and Russia was carried out at high tariffs, which was reflected both in the process of cargo transportation and on the price policy. Karen Karapetyan recalled that trilateral negotiations between Armenia, Georgia and Russia were held with a view of reducing tariffs for cargo transportation in these areas. As a result, new ratios entered into force on February 22 this year, and discount rates were provided by the Russian side since March 13.
"Compared with the tariffs valid until January 2017, tariffs for railway and ferry transportation on the route Moscow-Yerevan decreased by 32-35%, and in the direction of Yerevan-Moscow up to 52-54%, depending on the type of cargo," the Prime Minister of Armenia wrote.
