Armenia will evaluate the effectiveness of the governors

ArmInfo. The Prime Minister of  Armenia Karen Karapetyan is concerned about disproportion in the  development of the regions of Armenia. In this regard, on August 3 at  a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, he called for the development  of criteria for assessing the effectiveness of the heads of regional  administrations.

According to the prime minister, the government is ready to stimulate  programs for the development of infrastructures at the local level,  moreover, to provide direct assistance in the process of its  implementation, on the condition that local and regional authorities  themselves will show sufficient initiative in terms of mobilizing  their own resources and launching effective activities.

Karen Karapetyan noted that in the issue of planning local budgets,  local authorities showed sufficient ambitiousness, as a result of  which the region's own revenues, excluding Yerevan, increased by  17.3%. The index on collecting of own incomes for the first half-year  of this year also reassures. Exceeding the actual indicator of the  previous year by 950 million drams.  

At the same time, as the prime minister stressed, the studies  revealed a number of common problems requiring efficient and  operative solutions. In particular, the order of planning and  execution of own revenues of local budgets requires a cardinal  revision. A substantial disproportion, sometimes at times, is noted  both in the physical volumes of services provided by local  authorities and in the costs of these services.

An important role in the process, as the head of government pointed  out, is the heads of the regions. In this regard, the Prime Minister  instructed the Minister of Territorial Administration and Development  to submit to the Government Office within one month the procedure for  assessing the effectiveness of the governors.  The head of the  government called for considering the indicators on attracted  investments, the number of new jobs, the share of paid medical  services in the annual budget, the number of families below the  poverty line, the development of farms and modernization of the  sphere, as well as programs implemented in Community-private  partnership, etc.

"We developed passports of the regions, where the region is assessed  according to 69 criteria, and 11 major criteria for assessing the  work of the regional team for the year will be submitted for  approval," the Prime Minister of Armenia said.Note that according to  the development strategy of the regions for 2017-2025, it is expected  that by 2025 in each region of Armenia, GDP per capita will exceed  60% of the national average. In the specified terms, it is planned to  create 50 thousand highly skilled jobs, not including jobs in the  field of agriculture. Only in 2017 is expected to create 3 thousand  jobs.
