YEREVAN. – Armenia’s Cabinet of Minister unanimously approved the Government Activity Plan. The latter was put to a vote upon President Serzh Sargsyan’s motion.
And after the voting, the President instructed PM Tigran Sargsyan to send the Plan for the National Assembly’s consideration. Before that, however, Serzh Sargsyan noted that his first expectation from the Government is to secure a seven-percent economic growth this year.
“Economic growth is not an end onto itself. Our task is to place strong foundations for a sustainable and a permanent development, [and] consistent reduction of poverty and its total elimination in a foreseeable future,” said the President.
Also, he called upon the Cabinet to help the farmers in collecting, keeping and selling the harvest.
“Persistently be at the side of the villager, and the village will yield results,” noted Serzh Sargsyan.
