On the occasion of the Independence Day of Armenia, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced the country's development strategy until 2050. Its integral stage is the change in the attitude of millions of people towards Armenia. The republic should become a place where people from all over the world aspire for various reasons.
During the next 30 years Armenia is planning for bringing the population to 5 million, creating 1.5 million new jobs, overcoming poverty, achieving 20-fold increase of GDP and 7-fold increase of the average salary, raising life expectancy to 90 years.
The strategy presupposes the transformation of Armenia into a country with a high-tech economy and industry. The goals are to have at least 5 technology companies with a minimum capital of $10 billion, as well as 10 thousand operating startups; to double the area of forests in the republic; to bring the annual influx of tourists to Armenia to 15 million a year. The country, according to the authors of the strategy, by 2050 should win 25 Olympic gold medals, receive the title of individual world chess champion, and the football team should receive a medal in the World or European Championship.
Prime Minister Pashinyan paid special attention to the creation of one of the 10 most effective special services in the world, to the general strengthening of the combat capability of the armed forces.
Nowadays the power structures and special services of Armenia surpass the corresponding structures of Azerbaijan in terms of professional training. The National Security Service qualitatively protects the interests of Armenia, its people, and the state. This is facilitated by cooperation with both Russian departments and structures of other countries on the fight against international terrorism, illegal migration, organized crime and crimes in the field of computer information, energy and nuclear security.
The presented development strategy is the main set of ambitions and tasks that will guide the Armenian authorities the next 30 years. But objectively, taking into account all of the circumstances, not all goals are destined to be achieved.
