Armenian parliament is considering ratification of $315 million loan agreement with IMF

YEREVAN, June 24. /ARKA/. An emergency session of the Armenian parliament discussed today ratification of an agreement with the IMF regarding the use of the $280 million loan, allocated to Armenia in May 2019, and attraction of an additional loan in the amount of $35 million. The money is to help Armenia fight the coronavirus outbreak and mitigate its economic consequences.

Deputy Minister of Finance Armen Hayrapetyan said the coronavirus pandemic has been affecting Armenian government's revenue collection rate. To mitigate the pandemic's consequences the government decided to allocate 150 billion drams ($315 million) to finance a wide range of coronavirus-related compensatory measures, including cash payments to a large part of the population, financial assistance to businesses and loan subsidies for farmers.
