He said also the center is a joint initiative of the government and the private center, which is supposed to ensure significant economic results and additional revenues for the government, increase Armenia's positions in the international IT arena and make the country attractive for investment.

According to him, significant progress has been made in the electronic governance in recent years, in particular, a number of government bodies have introduced information systems allowing citizens and legal entities to communicate with the government agencies electronically. 

'This contributes to improving the quality of public services, reducing costs and corruption risks,' the minister said.

"Now we are discussing the possibilities of investing in the center with several private companies. According to preliminary calculations, the minimum required amount is $10 million. The government on its part will provide the premises and infrastructure, and the rest will be handled by a private investor," Martirosyan said.

The minister noted that all procedures and competitions for the creation of the center are to be completed by August 2018.
