This is going to be a turning point in the history of our company’s development,’ ArmenTel (operating under Beeline brand) Director General Igor Klimko told journalists.

He said the main priority of ArmenTel this year is to improve the quality of services rendered to its clients. According to him, the signing of the memorandum with a non-governmental organization, set up to defend the consumers’ rights, marks another phase of independent and constructive expertise of the company’s services. He added that ArmenTel expects the non-governmental organization to offer unbiased and constructive evaluation of its performance.

Abgar Yegoyan, chairman of the Defense of Consumers Rights NGO, said ArmenTel was one of the first companies in Armenia to start cooperation with the civic sector in a bid to improve the defense of consumers’ rights.

“I believe that this partnership will not only benefit consumers but may also become a model of interaction between private sector and civic organizations for the sake of public welfare,’ he said.
