Summarizing the consultation, Prime Minister Pashinyan instructed to develop a separate platform where all state real estates subject to privatization will be presented with full information. Nikol Pashinyan emphasized the application of such regulations and mechanisms that will ensure the full implementation of all obligations undertaken by investors who have acquired state property, according to the established schedule. "We have to be flexible in this area. It is necessary to pay special attention to capital investments and the substantive part of the project in the process of privatization. The main issue is the efficient use of the property, to what extent an area can be converted from unusable to usable. Our long-term goal is that the privatized enterprise works, pays taxes and develops," said the Prime Minister.
