of Culture Hasmik Poghosyan the end of the year enables a good chance
to sum up the works implemented in the course of the passing year,
besides plan up the ones to be carried out in coming year. Armenian

world book capital, besides Armenia celebrated 500th anniversary of
first Armenian printed book. Armenpress had an interview with Minister
of Culture Hasmik Poghosyan on Armenian cultural year.

To Armenpress reporter question, what will be priorities for
coming 2013 year Minister was quoted as saying.” The necessity to
put into practice the law on libraries should be the main priority
of coming year. This is a law of great importance that will enable
those libraries possessing relevant funds and abilities to be united
around a net and receive state assistance. The next priority refers
to cultural education and aesthetic educational national projects,
adopted recently”.
