YEREVAN. – The direction of the economic policy of the Armenian government is clearly stated in its program. We have said that we need to have a high-tech industry, a competitiveness-driven, participatory, inclusive economy, and steps are being taken to that end. Minister of Finance Atom Janjughazyan said this during a press conference today, referring to some economists' claim that Armenia does not have a clear economic policy, and therefore investments are not coming to the country.
"One of the ways to bring investments is through capital market development measures," he said. “We have created infrastructure today, we give an opportunity to invest in government bonds, but that does not solve the problem. We expect investments to be made in the real sector, in the capital of companies, and the way for it and the vision for having an established financial market in place in the future is expected to have a multitude of our events as a result."
