ArmInfo. The year 2017 can be described as the year of interaction between the economic bloc of the Government and the business community. Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan stated on December 20 at a reception in the presidential residence for the representatives of the business community of Armenia in connection with the New Year and Christmas holidays. In his congratulatory speech, the President touched upon the indicators of the country's economic growth and expectations for 2018.
In particular, according to the President, from January 1, after the entry into force of the Tax Code of Armenia and the Customs Code of the EAEU, the country's business community makes sure that almost all offers and recommendations of the business environment have been taken into account. The head of state is sure that the next year will be more successful economically, since in the current year sufficient conditions have been created, in order to sum up the year with satisfactory economic growth. "I do not want to predict, but I think that the economic growth will be more than 6%," said Serzh Sargsyan, recalling that the results of 11 months recorded a fairly high rate of economic activity - an unprecedented increase in exports - up to $ 2 billion.
In addition, as the president pointed out, for the first time in December the national currency does not feel any pressure. On the contrary, it makes an attempt to improve their positions. Serzh Sargsyan expressed hope that in 2018, by joint efforts, the current rates of development will be maintained. As the head of state assured, the authorities, for their part, will do everything possible to cooperate with the private sector in a real way.
