Account Taken of Greens’ Proposals

A cabinet sitting was held today, chaired by Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan.

The cabinet approved a program for preservation and maintenance of historical and architectural monuments in Khosrov public forest-reserve providing for the monitoring and restoration of over 300 such monuments available on the site. Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan noted that the decision comes to quell the fears expressed by environmental organizations concerning the challenges faced in the protected zone.

Ahead of the launch of a system of automated cross-border railroad communication ticket sales, as well as in order to enable uniform passenger traffic papers applicable between South-Caucasus Railway CJSC and Georgian Railway LLC, the meeting amended a previous decree referring to the list, sample forms and order of use of railway traffic papers. The new system is expected to improve the quality of passenger services thanks to a system of online ticket sales.

To enhance the authorized entity’s work efficiency, the Executive amended a previous decree referred to as “On approval of labeling rules and procedures for identification of specific lots of food products.” This new decision incorporates the imported products making it possible to trace back the commodities both manufactured or packed in Armenia and imported from abroad.

To track the future trends of configuration changes at Lake Sevan and improve them ahead, the meeting approved a program of ecosystem conservation and hydrological monitoring as developed by the presidential commission on Lake Sevan problems.
