Cabinet to be driving force to promote changes - Serzh Sargsyan

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan on Thursday urged the newly appointed prime minister to step up the country's economic development, promising to ensure coordinated work by all the government bodies.

In his speech at the cabinet meeting, the president noted that the reforms necessitated by the recent constitutional changes have practically got underway, obliging the cabinet to be the driving force to promote the drastic changes.

“Obviously, a top priority in [government] administration is to increase effectiveness. No lack of challenges at all either globally or in Armenia and the region. Obviously, it is easier to develop and secure a high economic outcome when you are surrounded by peace and partners who have an economic growth. Yet, external political signals make matters much more complicated, obliging you to work to the best of your efforts to secure development,” he said, calling for effort to maintain the economy’s competitiveness and its effective management.

The president said he has a strong belief that the cabinet led by Premier Karen Karapetyan will secure the economic targets not met by predecessors. “Of course, you are not going to be alone, as all the government bodies will be working in harmony; I promise you that. But the government must be the driving force and the builder,” he added.
