RA Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan stated today that the government would be raising the licensing standards for the importation of vodka, and thus levelling the playing field in favour of domestic producers.
PM Sargsyan noted that currently importers have an easier time when it comes to getting their product into Armenia when compared to domestic producers.
“You could say that we are defending local production by creating equal conditions for all. The new regulations will also beef up product monitoring, particularly from a health safety viewpoint. It will also assist us in carrying out our international obligations in this respect,” Sargsyan said.
