Erkin Abdykalykov: There are more problems in power industry than just tariffs

«There are many more problems in the energy sector of Kyrgyzstan. It is not necessary to distinguish only one — raising of tariffs," Erkin Abdykalykov, the General Director of Bishkekteploset OJSC, said at a press conference today.

According to him, the formation of a tariff policy should be approached in a comprehensive manner. «There are many problems in power engineering. It is wrong to emphasize only the tariffs. The same benefits should be dealt with separately, for example, in the highlands. There are also people who are wealthy, richer than in Bishkek. But they also receive benefits," Erkin Abykalykov said.

He added: before something is changed, it is necessary to think what the vulnerable segments of the population will receive instead.
