Artsakh to Cultivate Caviar


STEPANAKERT (Public Radio of Armenia) — The caviar factory in Artsakh’s Martakert region is planning to produce 15-20 tons of black caviar yearly.  “The caviar has already passed scrutiny by a leading international company,” Prime Minister Arayik Harutyunyan said at a press conference this week.

He said despite a number of economic problems Artsakh has faced since April, a double-digit growth is expected in the country, mostly thanks to investments in the fields of mining and hydropower, he said.

“We have grown into a country that not only satisfies its energy demands, but also plans to expert it to Armenia,” he said.

According to the Prime Minister, construction and fish-breeding have also been among the fastest-growing branches over the past months.

Harutyunyan said the government is planning to build the Talish village anew. “Construction of the community center and the medical center has already started. Construction of the school and kindergarten will start in the near future,” he said.
