BUSINESSMEN FEAR STATE EXTORTION
The businessmen in the world want to show that they get profit, that they develop, make investments, meanwhile in Armenia the businessmen are afraid of showing their profit; they show that they suffer losses. This situation, according to the economist Edward Aghajanov, is absurd. The economist told news reporters November 9 at the Pastark Club that the businessmen are afraid of showing their profit because they fear government extortion.
“You see, there must be more privileges for making investments in Armenia,” says Aghajanov. He says Armenia lacks an attractive consumer market, has an unsettled conflict, lacks foreign cmmunications, and in this case only tax privileges can attract serious investments. Aghajanov gives the example of Poland which, by the way, did not have problems of transport, consumer market or an unsettled conflict, proposed exempting Volkswagen from paying the profit tax for 12 years if the company makes investments in Poland and not in another country of the Eastern Europe.
