Welcoming the guests, the President noted that the annual meetings are a good opportunity to exchange views with stakeholders’ representatives and partners on the prospects of cooperation with subgroup countries, as well as on the challenges and problems facing the global economy and the ways of coping with them.

Highly appreciative of the ongoing cooperation with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, Serzh Sargsyan highlighted those joint projects implemented during the past 25 years of Armenia’s membership of these international financial institutions, thanks to which Armenia managed to ensure macroeconomic and financial stability, pursue coordinated fiscal and monetary policies, as well as carry out comprehensive reforms and enhance our country’s economic efficiency.
