Armenia Growth Firm

RIGA, Latvia -- Armenia's export-led economic growth is sustainable despite the political shake-up in the former Soviet Caucasian republic, Finance and Economy Minister Levon Barkhudaryan said Saturday.

Armenia's economy, which has suffered from years of conflict with neighboring Azerbaijan, grew by about 3.3 percent in 1999 following growth of 7.2 percent the year before.
