ArmInfo. I present my work as chairman of the State Commission for the Protection of Economic Competition (SCPEC) very active and dynamic, I think there are a lot of work in this area. About this April 17 in an interview with reporters, said acting of Minister of Agriculture, designee of SCPEC of Armenia Gegham Gevorgyan.
He noted that important achievements could be made in this area. He also touched on the fight against monopolies in Armenia. "We will not fight for the elimination of monopolies. In the near future, I will speak at the National Assembly on the topic of monopolies. The problem is that our society misunderstands the concept of monopoly and does not know what to do with it," he stressed.
On the question of journalists, does this mean that he will explain what monopolies are, but not to fight them, the latter remarked: "I didn't say that. We must fight to ensure that those who have monopolies or take their special place on they would not abuse their position. That is, it is permissible to have a dominant position in our society, but within the law, "said Gevorgyan. The latter also said: "Perhaps we will not be able to eliminate the monopoly, or there will be no need for this, the main thing is that a person with monopolies does not abuse his position," the designee of SCPEC stressed. When asked whether it was true that the nomination of the head of SCPEC was facilitated by warm relations between Gevorgyan and Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan, the latter said that this was not true. "My relations with Avinyan have nothing to do with it. I was nominated at the expense of my personal abilities. I was nominated personally by the Prime Minister," Gevrogyan concluded. It should be noted that yesterday Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan nominated the acting Minister of Agriculture Gegham Gevorgyan to the post of Chairman of the State Commission for the Protection of Economic Competition. Earlier, Artak Shaboyan was released from this post.
