Concerning structure of economic growth in Armenia

Economic growth is one of the instruments for measuring the country's economic development. But only the existence of economic growth is not enough to talk about the country's economic development. It is more important that what leads to the economic growth and how economic growth is formulated. In cases when economic growth is mainly driven by one or two factors or when it is driven by the growth of the non-exportable economy, we cannot speak about long-term and sustainable economic growth. From this point of view the economic growth of the Republic of Armenia is also significant, as especially in the recent periods the economic growth is mainly conditioned by lotteries and bookmaking.
