YEREVAN. - Past newspaper writes: There is a key gap in Armenia’s 2020 draft state budget that some economists have pointed out in a conversation with Past.
As a rule, the budget draft’s last section, called the Risk Assessment Section, primarily focuses on the potential risks that may affect budget execution and record some deviations during the process.
It turns out that this section of the 2020 budget does not include the fact of possible increase in the price of [Russian natural] gas imported to Armenia.
Economists believe that, in any case, the risk assessment section needed to record the likely increase in [the price of natural] gas.
