Astana. December 3. KazTAG - The anti-monopoly department will respond in case of increase of fuel prices, said Rustam Akhmetov, chairman of the committee for protection and development of competition of the Ministry of National Economy of Kazakhstan.
"We will take all the circumstances into consideration. If we see increase of fuel prices we will respond. We have to realize that retail market works with maximum low margin- 1-2 tenge. They have limited access to the resource holders," said Akhmetov.
He said that the main issue for the department, "is to avoid increase of prices in the result of conspiracy".
"Even if the price increased by 1% in the result of a conspiracy- it will be a ground to respond," he said.
