Statistics in agriculture sphere bothers the head of Armenian Government

ArmInfo. Statistics in the  field of agriculture bothers the  head of the Armenian Government.  "We need to carefully study the reasons for the decline in  agriculture in Armenia in the first 8 months of 2017," Prime Minister  of Armenia Karen Karapetyan stated at a meeting of the Armenian  Government on September 22.  Prime Minister reminded that  agricultural sector is recognized by the government as one of the  priority areas. At the same time, as he noted, the government focuses  on identifying the great economic potential of rural communities,  creating the necessary conditions and effectively implementing this  potential.

Meanwhile, the statistics of the sphere in recent months give cause  for concern on the basis of what, according to Karen Karapetyan, it  is necessary to ensure the analysis of the calculation formed in the  sphere of GDP.

Taking into account the above, the head of the Cabinet instructed the  ministers of agriculture, territorial administration and development,  as well as the governors of the regions and the head of the National  Statistical Service, to summarize and submit to the government staff  information on the indicators registered in the field of agriculture  and the reasons for the decline observed.

"In the terms of August-August and January-August, compared to the  same period of the previous year, growth was registered in all  spheres, except for agriculture and construction," Karen Karapetyan  said. At the same time, as the prime minister noted, the dynamics in  the sphere of construction shows that the gap will soon be  compensated by granting permits for construction work in the  wintertime, as well as due to positive expectations in this  direction. But in the field of agriculture the situation is  different, and as the prime minister believes, it requires a clear  understanding of the reason for the backlog.

To note,economic activity in Armenia in January-August 2017 increased  by 5.5% per annum on the back of a 21.7% increase in exports. In  August this year by August 2016, economic activity increased by 2.4%,  but only in August 2017 - by 18.7%. According to the preliminary data  of the National Statistical Service of Armenia, the growth of  economic activity in January-August 2017 to a greater extent  determined the industrial sector- by 12.4% per annum, services - by  12.4%, trade - by 12.3%, against which the growth of the energy  complex looked modest - 6.6% per annum. At the same time, the  agricultural sector and the sphere of construction were delayed in a  downward trend, respectively 9.4% and 8% per annum.
