ArmInfo.Now there is no such producer of products in Armenia, which, being more or less .lcompetitive, would have problems with the sale of these products. Speaking at the final session of the conference on local self-government and territorial administration, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan stated this.
According to the press service of the head of state, in his speech the president, in particular, recalled that earlier the prime minister had called for the communities to submit development programs. "A very commendable and necessary proposal for all of us, but a total of 180 programs were submitted, of which only 108 reached the stage of discussion, 58 of them were approved by the government, but later those people who submitted the programs refused 44 developed by them What does this mean? Means that the government has given you the opportunity to work, get help, but on the condition that you have programs that your communities can use your abilities to create and execute programs. But what happened as a result, we talked so much, so much work, and around 14 programs will agree that it is primarily your fault, and not the government needs to pay attention to these issues ", the president said. According to the head of the republic, Armenia "as the air requires success stories." "If we have five, seven, ten successful programs in each of the marzes, believe that next year, next year they will double and triple next year," he said. Serzh Sargsyan called a good idea the initiative of the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development on the appointment of communities responsible for economic development programs. "It does not mean that community leaders should lose all responsibility." It is clear that we should work separately with the private entrepreneur, and we will work with pleasure, but community development programs should be born first of all on the initiative of the communities, "he said. The President noted that in the long term, success is achieved by those programs that connect communities with global value networks. The circle of beneficiaries of the programs being implemented, according to Serzh Sargsyan, can be substantially expanded through the improvement of town-planning standards, rules for building and managing real estate. "If in a few words it's more clear to say, I will give as a concrete example our activities over the past 2-3 years in connection with membership in the Eurasian Economic Union." Now in Armenia there is no such producer of products that, being more or less competitive, would have problems with the realization of this product. Of course, if we have hundreds of thousands of rural households that produce small quantities and poor quality products, this presents certain difficulties. But ask a major manufacturer if it has problems with the implementation. There is nothing like it, "he said.
According to the head of state, Armenia has become part of this large value chain, we have become part of the 170 million market, and we should take advantage of these opportunities. "I think that in the foreseeable future we will also have an enterprise that will try to unite the capabilities of these small rural farms, agreeing in advance and buying from them their products and exporting under a common brand to other markets," the president said, expressing hope for that the possible financial instruments presented by the Central Bank will give you an excuse to develop and present new initiatives. "A good example can be contagious in a good sense, I think that the Central Bank can implement a retraining program to provide the community with innovative approaches to financing and achieving a new quality in implementing community development programs," Sargsyan said, urging the head of the Central Bank to be more proactive.
According to Serzh Sargsyan, if there are initiative and clear programs, the Central Bank can provide consultations at an initial stage to make investment programs representative for investors. "Communities themselves must first of all strive to create appropriate opportunities, here, of course, we will draw on the best international experience, attracting all interested international structures," the President noted. As the head of the republic pointed out, moving to the parliamentary system of governance, Armenia should rethink the state administration in the marzes, create new legislative regulations and monitor their practical implementation. "The heads of regional administrations have an important role to play here, overcoming the role of an observer and mediator who conveys any appeals and messages to the leaders of the communities from the government, just a passive coordinator or only a local manager. The development of community capabilities is possible only in the case of cooperation and purposeful work.Yes, we must strive, dream, develop and implement programs, "concluded Serzh Sargsyan.President Serzh Sargsyan participated in the final session of the conference on local self-government and territorial administration, which is being held in Dilijan on December 8-9 by the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development and the Union of Armenian Communities public organization.
