STEPANAKERT, MAY 20,  ARTSAKHPRESS:  The above-mentioned was stated by Arayik Harutyunyan, Chairman of the “Free Homeland” Party at the meeting with the activists of the southern wing of the Kashatagh region.
"Today, general education is free in Artsakh, higher education is mostly based on fee-paying basis. I think that state policy should be changed in this direction, and higher education for our compatriots should become basically free,” noted Arayik Harutyunyan. Noting that apart from the social component, it will enable to toughen the demands of educational reforms in the field of higher education.
Harutyunyan said that health, education and housing conditions in all countries with a developed economy are provided by state funding.

"This is the developed socialism, which does not mean renouncing market economy, private property, but on the contrary. Having a socially-guaranteed family, the country has a working, peaceful and happy citizen, which is the main task of the state and the government. Where to find such financial resources?

In response to the question, I would mention that the state budget of the Republic of Artsakh in 2007 made only 32 billion drams, and in 2019 - 115 billion due to economic growth and programs that have been implemented in recent years. I am convinced that in the case of 8-10% annual economic growth, we will have the opportunity to increase the state budget.

In the next three years, our state budget expenditure will reach 145-150 billion drams, about 300 million dollars. This volume of budget will enable to eliminate the poverty in the country, to have free and qualified medical care, free education and a clear state policy of housing conditions, "Arayik Harutyunyan concluded.
