In his words, imports to the country have increased by 23.2 percent, from January to October, and reached close to 2 billion and 821 million US dollars. In the overall growth, however, 27.4 percent accounts for equipment, and 22.1 percent—for raw materials.
Karapetyan noted that industrial intensification is already noticeable in Armenia, and the production of industrial products has grown by 11.9 percent during the specified period.
“And even better results can be expected later on,” assured the Armenian PM.
