YEREVAN.- Armenian government’s action plan for 2012-2017 will not be implemented, Heritage member told reporters on Thursday.
Armen Martirosyan said the reason is not that it contains unrealistic ideas, simply there are no people capable of implementing it. Armenia cannot have free economy until oligopoly rules the country.
“Will oligarchs represented in all the branches of the system carry out reforms?” he wonders.
Political will and reducing the shadow economy are enough to double minimum wage. Besides, in the context of total migration, the government must create not 100 thousand of new jobs, but hundreds of thousands, he believes.
Armen Martirosyan expressed concern over action plan’s points on agriculture, adding that road construction must be government’s priority. As regards the 7% growth, the opposition party member said some figures will be presented but it will hardly affect the lives of Armenian citizens.
He also mentioned tax simplification which was a core point of Heritage party’s campaign program.
