The Board of Trustees of the Industrial Development Fund held its first sitting today chaired by Minister of Economy Tigran Davtyan. The Minister presented the export-oriented state assistance programs envisaged by the industrial policy strategy in 2013.
The resources of the Find will total 500 mln AMD, of which 300 mln will be allocated from the state budget and 200 mln from the Gyumri Fund.
