YEREVAN. – Armenia needs to form a ministry that regulates the country’s innovation sector, Union of Information Technology Enterprises Executive Director Karen Vardanyan stated during a press conference on Friday.
As per Vardanyan, this ministry’s functions should include the entire innovation sector, high technology, and telecommunications.
“There is no agency today [in Armenia] which is fully responsible for our sector. The Government launched several serious steps in the most recent years, but there must be someone who will be responsible for it,” Vardanyan said.
He added that the proposal to form a new ministry is submitted to the Government, but there is no response yet.
