ArmInfo. On August 21 Chairman of the State Revenue Committee (SRC) of Armenia David Ananyan during the next working visit to the territory provided for the construction of the international economic activity Center in Gyumri, noted the importance of timely completion of the first stage of work.
According to the press service of the SRC, for the timely delivery of the building provided for the customs clearance of vehicles, Ananyan instructed to ensure high quality and continuity of construction work. As the head of the SRC stated earlier, the vehicles customs clearance center in Gyumri will already start operating in October.
The tax and customs committee recalls that by decision of the head of the Cabinet a working group was created and its chairman, David Ananyan, reports every Saturday on the progress of the work.
Earlier, ArmInfo reported that a program was launched in Armenia to open a new vehicles customs clearance center in Gyumri. The total cost of the program is 2.2 billion drams. The intentions to transfer the customs clearance point for imported cars from the customs department in Noragavit to Gyumri come from the order of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia in connection with an unprecedented increase in the import of motor vehicles from countries that are not members of the EAEU. It is planned to build a car customs in Gyumri on the territory of 21.5 hectares owned by the Ministry of Defense. 4.5 hectares from this territory will be allocated for the establishment of a customs and police service center. It is envisaged that the new customs control point for imported vehicles will become part of the project of opening two centers for promoting foreign economic activity - in Gyumri and Sisian. Thus, both centers will be located along the North-South highway. The process will require not months, as many expect, but several years. The construction will be carried out on grant and credit funds and, according to preliminary estimates, will require $ 19-21 million for the construction of each Center.
