2017 has not been a successful year for consumers. Karen Chilingaryan, head of the Consumer Consulting Center, thinks that consumers cannot sum up the year satisfied.
“In case of rise in prices, there was neither increase in minimum wages, nor in pensions. It turns out that 1/3 of Armenia is officially on the verge of poverty, if this continues so, it will not be thirty percent, but will become forty,” says Karen Chilingaryan.
This year prices have increased in almost all spheres. Butter, cheese and meat prices have been worrisome for the consumer. It is the food of the first necessity.
The citizens are convinced that the authorities can do things so as citizens not to feel the raise in price.
