Karen Karapetyan highlights programs aimed at development of IT sector
The Armenian Government pins great hopes on the IT sector in realizing its vision for groundbreaking reforms, Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan said today as he hosted a delegation of IT specialist to discuss plans for an effective collaboration, Tert.am reports.
“We, the government officials, are not the ones expected to carry out a revolution. But to encourage the people who work and seek to secure profit, we must direct our subsidies to those who are really successful. What I want you to do is to submit specific projects proposing ways for refor,ing the sector,” he said.
According to a press release by the Government, the chief of cabinet accepted the proposals and asked Minister of Transport, Communication and Information Technologies Vahan Martirosyan to consider and elaborate a plan of actions within limited timeframes. Meantime, he expressed hope that the collaboration would yield visible result in the short run, contributing to the IT industries’ more active work.
