Your visit, such meetings are always important, because you are one of the important investors in the Republic of Armenia, in particular, one of the most important investors in the Republic of Armenia from the Diaspora. Therefore, I think your investments also predetermine the general investment climate in the Republic of Armenia.

Mr. Prime Minister, I did not want to delay it, I wanted to come as soon as possible, to congratulate you on your victory, because it is very important, and we supported your victory from the beginning.
We invest in different spheres in Armenia. And we plan to continue making large-scale investments in Armenia. We are currently negotiating with a bank. We see a good growth in the tourism sector in Armenia, and fortunately, we will soon offer a new investment project in the airport construction sector. My cousin Martin, who is currently in charge of all this, will come to Armenia very soon to contact the person you will indicate, of course, for discussing the investment plan.
We must be very pleased with the development in the wine and viticulture sector in Armenia that we have been able to predict, invest in and reform. Fortunately, today these wines are widespread throughout Europe.
I do not want to take too much time from you, Mr. Prime Minister, I am at your disposal’’.
