YEREVAN. – The Government does not ‘plan conspiracy plots’ for
the people to leave the country, Armenian PM Tigran Sargsyan said
responding to the opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC) MP Aram
Manukyan. The latter claims over 69,000 Armenians left the state since
the beginning of this year, while the number may achieve 150,000 at
the end of the year.
The greatest waves of migration occurred in 1990-95, when over
1.5 people left the state and the current ANC representatives were
“As a matter of fact, migration volumes started to decrease parallel
to the increase of economic growth. However, the 2009 crisis had a
negative impact on stimulating the migration,” PM said adding they
do work out projects on how to establish new jobs and secure people’s
proper life standards.
However, there are problems and defaults to yet overcome and if there
are more effective steps to take, authorities are ready to consider
them as well.
