YEREVAN. – Estonian Ministry of Finance Secretary General Veiko Tali, who is currently in the Armenian capital Yerevan and is delivering lectures on pension reforms, was surprised by the presence of male hairdressers in the capital.
And he was even more surprised by the fact that he did not pay directly to the hairdresser, but rather to the administrator, and the latter had given him a receipt.
“In my country I always gave the money to the hairdresser, and the hairdresser never gives a receipt. It seems you are more progressive,” the Estonian official jokingly said while delivering remarks at an international seminar-consultation on social security and pension reforms, which is being held in Yerevan.
