New Armenian Cabinet Vows Major Reforms
YEREVAN (RFE/RL) — Armenia’s newly reshuffled government has released its policy program that pledges to help speed up economic growth through a tougher fight against corruption, better tax administration and “equal conditions” for all businesses.
The program adopted at a cabinet meeting in Yerevan late on Tuesday will be sent to the Armenian parliament on Thursday. Its approval by the National Assembly will amount to a vote of confidence in Prime Minister Karen Karapetian’s cabinet.
“I am instructing everyone to pay special attention to the program’s implementation,” Karapetian told ministers. “We are going to be accountable.”
