Prices Go Up in Belarus

MINSK — Prices and tariffs for individual goods and services rose in Belarus on Nov. 1, Interfax reported.

The charge for a single fare on public transportation went up from 950 to 1,300 Belarussian rubles (from $0.11 to $0.15), or by 36.8 percent in Minsk, and by 300 rubles to 1,100 rubles in district and regional centers. Higher tariffs have been introduced for housing utility services.

New excises will be levied on beer, alcohol products and fuel between Nov. 1 and Dec. 31, which will lead to higher retail prices. Pensions will increase by an average of 22 percent in November.
