Ministry of Agriculture Sets Up Licensing Department

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The Quality–Standardization and Licensing Department of the Ministry of Agriculture has been divided into two structures: the Quality and Standardization Department and the Licensing Department. The staff of the Licensing Department is yet to be appointed. The process will take about a month–after which licenses will be issued. The current licenses issued for the production of alcohol beverages will be enforced until January 14–whereafter a new–stricter order of licensing will go into effect.

Producers believe the measure will cause private enterprises to pursue preconditions for further monopolization and more unemployment.
