Sep 22, 2008
YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 22, ARMENPRESS: "The proportional territorial
development is one of prior issues of Armenian government. Our aim is
that the territories of the republic have high tempo of development,
which will not concede Yerevan," Armenian Prime Minister Tigran
Sargsyan said during his working visit to Lori province September 20.
According to him, high-level centralization is noticed in the
capital now, which impedes the proportionate development of
territories. Therefore, the development of other communities of the
republic must be based on the implementation of complex programs.
"We must pay attention not only to the development of the economy,
but also infrastructures, social importance, cultural institutions,"
Tigran Sargsian stated.
Armenian prime minister expressed hope that technical programs,
which are already being implemented, will essentially improve the
education level in the whole territory of the republic.
"The complex programs will promote that our provinces become convenient
for life. People will not seek to come to the capital for career,
but will have an opportunity to get qualified higher education in
the provinces and have a job with high salary," T. Sargsian noted.
