The structure of our economy today gives no grounds for optimism, and we need to change it.
Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on Sunday said the aforementioned during his talk with representatives of the Armenian community of the US, in New York.
“We want to turn Armenia from an agrarian, mining, and bet-making country into a high-tech country, which is our most important imperative, [and] which stems from our security environment,” the PM stressed.
He noted that, within four months, his government has done its task to keep the situation stable in the country, and what they have been able to do is the key challenge in the post-revolutionary period.
“Our most important task today is attracting new investments [into Armenia],”Nikol Pashinyan added. “To that end, we are going toward tax code reforms, establishment of an independent judicial system, [and] maintenance of the stabile political situation, [and] for which we need to hold snap parliamentary elections in the near future.”
