YEREVAN. – Nearly 1.5 million Armenians have bank deposits amounting
to $1- 1.5 billion, sociologist Aharon Adibekyan said during the
Thursday press conference.
He believes that after introduction of a cumulative pension system,
this amount will increase.
“We are gradually going to a market democracy. It becomes unnecessary
that our tables were traditional,” Adbekyan said.
Sociologist also expressed surprise at the fact that environmentalists
have not raised protest against imports of smoked crocodiles. Now
the country is in a state of post-holiday stress.
“The main reason for this is the uncertainty for all, as it is unknown
how the things will go. This is what throws us into a panic. Another
cause of stress is the fact that about half of Armenian families have
spent their savings to New Year celebrations,” he added.
