Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan on Amulsar Program


On 4th December President Serzh Sargsyan invited a meeting with the participation Vayots dzor  region governor and officials from the regional administration. Turning to the Amulsar gold mine exploitation issue he said,  “There is another thing which will have a significant impact on the economic development of the region. I am speaking about the development of auriferous mines of Amoulsar. Though it’s been quite a while, 8 or 9 years we have been speaking about it, actually not only speaking, but carrying out significant work to conduct international ecological expertise. I believe the time has come, and the mining company is ready to start the construction of the plant in spring of 2016. It will mean over a one thousand new jobs for the marz, which I believe is even a little more than required. With this regard, the governor, the administrative office and local government bodies have to face two critical issues: together with the Ministers of Culture and Economy to develop a modern and efficient program for tourism development. Both Ministers are aware, and can start working right away. And the second issue: we have worked really long to get ecological expertise, taking into consideration all international standards in choosing the place for the plant and development of the mines. The task of the Administrative Office of the region and of the three communities is not to compromise even on one inch when it comes to ecological issues but instead to repay for this approach by providing swift and quality solution to all problems related to the mining and construction of the plant. These are very important issues.”
