Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan received Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov. The two co-chair the Armenian-Russian Intergovernmental Commission on Economic Cooperation.
“The volume of direct Russian investments in Armenia makes 40% of the foreign investments in the republic,” the Russian Minister said, adding that another 50 mln will be invested in 1,820 joint ventures.
“I’m glad that our dialogue is developing dynamically, especially ahead of Armenia’s joining the Customs Union and the Eurasian Economic Union. This is important for Armenia, Russia and all other member states,” he said.
The parties hailed the process of implementation of the measures envisaged by the “roadmap” of Armenia’s accession to the Customs Union.
