The revolution [in Armenia] was based on a slogan we had been voicing for many years. Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this during his address yesterday at the Friedrich Ebert Foundation (Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung) in Berlin.
"When we were saying to the citizens of the Republic of Armenia that 'The future of Armenia depends on one person, and you are that one person;' we want every citizen of Armenia to adopt this very slogan," he particularly noted. “And, in essence, we lay the same concept on the basis of economic revolution (…).
And we urge our citizens, including foreign investors, of course, to pursue economic activity in the Republic of Armenia, and thus get rich and make rich.
We say that individual effort is the key factor that will ultimately lead to the economic revolution in Armenia (…).
But in this respect it is very important for us to encourage education. In the near future I am going to publish our strategic vision of Armenia by 2050. (…) We have a task of making education in the Republic of Armenia a national way of life.”
