The macroeconomic framework for 2022 was discussed during a meeting with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan today.
In his opening speech, the Prime Minister Pashinyan particularly noted. "2020 was an extremely problematic year, including in economic terms, not only because of the war but also because of the new type of coronavirus. We must clearly state that 2021 will be a year of recovery of our economic ambitions.
We have many economic challenges, but we also have many opportunities. Of course, first of all we must focus on the solution of humanitarian problems and, on the other hand, state that the trilateral statement signed in Moscow on January 11 and its possible implementation can create completely new economic opportunities for the Republic of Armenia. We are ready to take full advantage of these opportunities".
Minister of Finance Atom Janjughazyan presented the general forecasts for the macroeconomic framework and economic developments in 2022. He noted that due to the coronavirus pandemic and the hostilities in Artsakh, it is expedient to start discussions on the budget process earlier.
