The Minister got acquainted with the results of the assignments after the last meeting and the progress in the construction work.

The engineering team noted that, as a result of the agreement between the contractor and the engineers, the methods of the work had changed, which would help increase the efficiency of the activity. The new methodology has been tested and they are waiting for the results of the expertise. If the results of the expertise are positive, the work will proceed faster.

He also urged to make the most effort, even to work in the second shift, to increase the pace of work. The Minister also stressed that there should not be any non-working equipment on the construction site.

Mr. Vazgen Petrosyan noted that an action plan was discussed with the "Sinohydro" and the engineering team according to which the work should be carried out.
