In his opening speech, Prime Minister Pashinyan referred to the formation of the military-industrial complex: “After the adoption of the Law “On Military-Industrial Complex” in 2015, the military industry is one of the most discussed topics in our country. But, in fact, we can say that the results available today are not at all satisfactory. Unfortunately, we have failed to develop systems that would allow us to say that the military-industrial complex gas been established in the Republic of Armenia. Given the current situation, we may have to take stock of what happened in the previous period, identify the shortcomings, understand what realistic programs we need to take in military industry so that the military-industrial complex can become the engine of our country’s economy and industry. and on the other hand, to meet our security needs in line with modern challenges.”
