Government- private sector cooperation to tackle export issues

PanARMENIAN.Net - A new government- private sector cooperation platform must be formed to more effectively determine priority sectors of the country’s export-oriented economy, according to Armenian Prime Minister.

At Republican Party of Armenia (RPA)-organized seminar on export-oriented industrial development strategy, Tigran Sargsyan urged the authorities to take better effort addressing the issue of economy regulation both on micro- and macro levels.

“In full acknowledgement of new realities, the government of Armenia, assisted by WB, EV Consulting company and Economy Ministry initiated a new policy, envisaging cooperation with the private sector to jointly decide on priority issues in promotion of export,” the PM stressed.
