STEPANAKERT, July 23. /ARKA/. The rise of salaries in Nagorno-Karabakh Republic on July 1 is easing social tension, Nagorno-Karabakh Prime Minister Ara Harutyunyan said Tuesday at a news conference.
In his words, no significant price hikes are expected in the republic, particularly in the food market.
“As for the calculation of coefficients of salaries of the public sector’s employees, they are based on the agreement between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, according to which social and salary policies must be similar in the two republics,” he said. “It means the criteria chosen in Armenia have been introduced also in Nagorno Karabakh.”
In July I, 2014, the minimum salary in Karabakh was raised from 45,000 drams to 50,000 drams. ($1 – 406.84). -0---
