Strauss-Kahn congratulated RA Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan on
appointment. The message says, in part:

"Dear Mr. Sargsyan, I warmly congratulate you on the occasion of
your appointment as Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia. A
number of most important reforms were implemented during the 10 years
of your activity as the President of the Central Bank of Armenia,
including the reduction of deficit, implementation of an effective
banking control system and elaboration of legislation resisting money
laundering. Your commitment to the principles of continuousness of
reforms and intellectual management considerably contributed to the
success of the efforts of the new Armenian Government directed at
overcoming the existing challenges. We know that you will maintain
the high level and are convinced that you will reach your objectives.

For 15 years the IMF has been effectively cooperating with the
Armenian authorities in the field of economic policy and reforms,
including in the framework of the three programs targeted at poverty
reduction and economic growth. You can be confident that during your
tenure in office we shall continue cooperation with you, maximally
supporting your efforts targeted at maintaining the dynamics of
economic development and reforms in Armenia."
