During a meeting with Prime MinisterTigran Sarkisian the ITU Secretary General was informed that in the recently published world report of the National Competitiveness Armenia’s IT indices of 2009 were published, despite the fact that the results of 2011 were posted on the ITU website. The Head of the Government mentioned that if the indices of 2011 were published, the level of our country’s competitiveness would have been higher.
Hamadoun Touré said that it was a matter of misunderstanding. The Secretary General of ITU stressed that in 2011 Armenia registered the highest growth rate in the IT field in South Caucasus.
