More than 70% of Yerevan residents are not going to leave the country

According to many experts, the Armenia economy standard will increase for 2.5-3%, Arman Ghukasyan, “Vox Populi” NGO expert, said at a meeting with journalists.

“Last few months may be considered favorable for Armenian economics. The export increased by 21%. We see rather large perspectives in the net of EAEU. If those achievements are used in a proper way, migration decrease is expected in January 2018”, Ghukasyan mentioned.

According to the expert, the citizens of Armenia rely on the Government activity.
