As a result of the overhaul of a 45-apartment building on Varanda Street in the town-fortress, funded by the Artsakh Investment Fund and dwelling buildings in Hakhoumyan district, about 150 apartments will be put into operation in the near future. For timely realization of the process, President Harutyunyan gave a range of instructions on the spot to those responsible.
The President subsequently visited the Shoushi regional medical association building. After a brief discussion on the need to overhaul and equip it, Arayik Harutyunyan promised that the program will be in the spotlight of the government.
The Head of the State assigned to resume the construction activities on one of the largest construction sites of the regional center, where after the completion of the works the National Assembly of the Artsakh Republic will be located. According to the President, the relocation is envisaged in 2022, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the liberation of the town-fortress. He urged those responsible for the construction to finish the activities within the set timeframe. "This is not a goal in itself.
