I'm sure this team came out of this period with honor. Congratulations to Mr. Simidyan on his new appointment. Being well-aware of the personal and professional qualities of our political partner, I am sure that with the same team and various replacements, Mr. Simidyan will set a new benchmark in the most important field of environmental management”.

The newly appointed Minister, in turn, thanked for the trust. "I would like to thank Mr. Petrosyan for leading such a difficult field in a difficult period. The programs that are currently being implemented by the ministry will be continuous, we will try to make the works more effective. I hope that by that we will boost and develop the environment, and the economy in general," Hakob Simidyan said.
