The discussion was rather frank and constructive. And since the scope of discussed issues was very extensive, President of RA Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Member of RA National Assembly Mr. Martin Sargsyan proposed to make the discussions periodic and thematic for the entrepreneur to get possibly comprehensive answer. A group of businessmen proposed to make the inspections by the licensed private organizations not state ones evaluating the idea of alternative option. Active discussions turned to variants for applying fines and penalties during the alternative inspections. The thing that the field is not equal for everyone in terms of risk was concretized and new rules of game should be developed. There were suggestions for developing a conception for business-tax cooperation and making tax amnesty.
The dialogue was frank and was often ending by the approximation of opinions and viewpoints. Both businessmen and guests assessed the meeting very favorable expecting regular organization of such initiatives.
President of RA Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Member of RA National Assembly Mr. Martin Sargsyan informed that the businessmen’s positive comments and recommendations will be classified and submitted to National Assembly for amending the draft law.
