The government of Armenia sets ambitious economic growth targets

On July 2, 2021, acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan held a session behind closed doors where they discussed the recovery plan of the domestic economy.

After the meeting, Pashinyan announced that the government expects economic growth by 7% annually from 2022 to 2026.

Pashinyan further noted that Armenia’s Gross Domestic Product is now projected to grow by 6%.

According to the government program, faster GDP growth will also translate into a sizable rise in tax revenues. They are projected to increase from about $2.8 billion in 2020 to $4.2 billion in 2024.

The main factors contributing to the steady fast growth are the expected investments.
