Chaired by Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan, the Government continued discussing public agency performance reports for 2016, including their compliance with the government’s action plan 2016, priorities and assessed performance.

Reports were delivered by the Minister of Nature Protection, Minister of Economic Development and Investment, the Head of State Property Management Department and the Head of State Committee for Urban Development.

Minister of Nature Protection Artsvik Minasyan reported that an inventory of Lake Sevan fish resources was carried out in the period under review, and a 38.9 percent increase in fish resources was recorded. In the meantime, the Ministry was able to identify the barriers to natural reproduction of trout.

An ecotourism information center was set up, which is supposed to summarize industry opportunities and provide the necessary statistics to tour operators. An automated water management system was introduced in Ararat Valley. In addition, the National Green Economy Center and Jermuk National Park were established last year.

Cleanup activities continued in Lake Sevan coastal areas. As a result, an area of 93 thousand hectares has already been cleared of garbage and wastes. Reforestation was completed on 70 hectares. The Minister said they are working on the possibility of handing over the national parks to trust managers.

Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan instructed to take consistent steps toward capitalizing and raising efficiency in the environmental sector.
