It is  noteworthy that in the next fiscal year there will be various public  sector reform programs all $ 55.5 million was allocated, and  education and social sectors will receive together $ 43 million,  agriculture and irrigation - $ 51.4 million, irrigation $ 19.1  million, and sanitation - $ 15.6 million.

At the same time, the expert said, 26.6% of the planned borrowings  will come from loans from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), 23.9%  from the World Bank (IBRD and the International Development  Association), 7.9% is expected from the EBRD) , 9.8% - from the EIB ,  4.1% from the EDB. The share of Russian loans will be 16.2%, France  will provide 2.8% of the borrowings, 7.6% is expected from KFW.   Almost half of the planned borrowings - 49.7% are expected in the  field of loans provided in the US currency, 36.7% - in euros and  13.6% in SDR. 56.6% of them at a floating interest rate.

At the end of 2020, it is expected that the largest external  creditors of Armenia in the amount of $ 4.4 billion in government  debt continue to be the World Bank (WB), represented by the  International Development Association (IDA) and another member of the  WB group - the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development  (IBRD). The list of major creditors also includes the Asian  Development Bank (ADB) with 18.7%, the Eurasian Development Bank  (EDB) - 7.3% and the European Investment Bank with 3.5%.

It is expected that by the end of 2020 the unclaimed balance of  external loans of Armenia will amount to $ 940 million. As of October  30, 2019, the figure would be at the level of $ 1.43 billion.  According to the results of the next year, 31% of the undeveloped  part of loans will fall to KFW loans ( $ 290 million), ADB loans -  22% or $ 200 million, EDB - 17% or $ 170 million, IBRD - 24% or $ 130  and Russian loans 7% or $ 70 million.
