Pashinyan: Ecology plays an important role in terms of the country`s  economic and tourism image

ArmInfo. On July 31, Armenia's  Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan introduced the newly appointed  Minister Romanos Petrosyan at the RA Ministry of Nature Protection.

Expressing gratitude to Petrosyan's predecessor, Erik Grigoryan, and  noting his contribution to the environmental sector, the Prime  Minister stressed that the government's activities are based on the  principle of "green Armenia", that is, a country that meets high  environmental requirements. In this regard, he pointed out the  importance of a balanced approach in the environmental sector, which  would not contradict the issues of ecology and industrial  development.

Pashinyan acknowledged that there are serious environmental problems  in Armenia, ranging from uncontrolled accumulations of garbage to the  situation with Sevan. As the head of the Cabinet of Ministers put it,  an ecological disaster can be found in Sevan practically at every  step of the way. This and other environmental problems, as it was  emphasized, have been developing over the decades, and their solution  is an important task, especially given that the environment plays an  important role, including in terms of the country's economic and  tourist image. Pashinyan also spoke about the final stage of  developing a strategy until 2050, which, among other things, involves  doubling forest areas.

To note, earlier Romanos Petrosyan held the post of the governor of  the Kotayk region of the Republic of Armenia.
