Opening the conference, hosted by Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), he said that “we are two countries that share political and cultural ties,” underlining that bilateral economic relations can improve further. He also said that the business forum is an opportunity for Greek and Armenian entrepreneurs to forge closer cooperation in sectors such as energy, transports, trade and construction.

Armenian Economy Minister Tigran Davtyan stressed that his country’s economy is orientated toward the EU and that Greece serves as a “window” to the European Union. He also referred to the European Neighborhood Policy and the signing of a cooperation protocol, underlining that the target is macro-economic stability and the implementation of Maastricht criteria.
