Armenia should use the potential for greater cooperation with USA, prime minister says

YEREVAN, October 12. /ARKA/. The United States is a key partner for Armenia, Armenian Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan said at a reception Thursday marking the 25th anniversary of USAID operation in Armenia.

"We interact in many sectors, but I am confident that we have a potential for greater cooperation and should use it," he stressed. Karapetyan noted that in the face of USAID Armenia has a very reliable partner.

"Over these years, a long string of joint projects have been carried out dictated by time and with an emphasis on actual challenges," he said.

In this regard, Karapetyan explained that in the 1990s these challenges were mainly related to the formation of Armenia's market economy and the establishment of democratic institutions, while humanitarian projects were aimed at eliminating the consequences of the devastating 1988 earthquake in Spitak. According to the head of the government, in the late 90s a transition to a new type of interaction was made for the sake of stable economic development.

"We focused on the market economy reforms, strengthening the private sector and macroeconomics, stimulating investment flows and laying the foundations for stable development. The work aimed at developing civil society and democratic institutions continued," Karapetyan said.

He added that work is now continuing with American partners on numerous programs related to economic growth, development of democratic institutions and other projects of social and educational orientation. In this regard, Karapetyan said that Armenia is at the stage of new reforms.

"We initiated reforms in all spheres to ensure Armenia's stable and long-term growth and competitiveness in a changing world. We need a significant increase in efficiency in all sectors, as well as a change in the way of thinking and style of work, "Karapetyan said. -0-
