The Government of Armenia will consider the possibility of cutting expenses for maintenance of the state apparatus. This is what Deputy Prime Minister Mher Grigoryan said in response to deputies’ questions during today’s question and answer session with government officials in parliament.

According to him, the government has data on the specific sectors in which shortcomings were recorded last year.

Grigoryan didn’t rule out layoffs of 10% of employees of state institutions, but failed to state the specific sectors. He also admitted that things were different when the parliament was considering the draft of the 2021 State Budget a few months ago.
