Budgetary allocations in the military industry will grow by 122% in 2020, Hakob Arshakyan, Minister of High-tech Industry, said on Friday, November 15. “Out of the AMD 12.5 billion ($26.3 million) to be allocated to the Ministry of High-tech Industry, AMD 6.3 billion ($13.3 million) will be spent on military industry,” Arshakyan was quoted as saying by Shantnews.am.
