/PanARMENIAN.Net/ With a vote 88 to 3, the Armenian National Assembly
adopted the government program for 2008-2012.

The program includes provisions from the National Security Strategy
and poverty reduction project, the election programs of the President,
political parties and basic provisions of the agreement on political
coalition.

Presenting the program, RA Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan said that the
government's priorities will be ensuring high macroeconomic development
rate and economic growth. "With a limited influence, the government
will create favorable conditions for the private sector. The goal of
the government is to make Armenia a regional center for business and
investments," he said.

"We should also finally resolve the poverty problem.

The best way to do it is to engage low-income groups in the economic
and political life of the republic," he added, Novosti Armenia reports.
