Deepening of cooperation with the Gulf countries in trade, economy and for investments has always been a major part of the Armenian government’s agenda. This is what Deputy Prime Minister Mher Grigoryan said in his speech at the festive event dedicated to Independence Day of the United Arab Emirates.
“There is great potential in the relations between Armenia and the United Arab Emirates, especially in trade and economy, and the purposeful use of that potential will contribute to mutually beneficial cooperation. We view the UAE as a major bridge between Armenia and the Gulf countries. At the same time, Armenia can become a bridge for the UAE to reach out to the market of the Eurasian Economic Union,” he stated, adding that the first session of the Armenia-UAE Intergovernmental Commission held in May of this year played a major role in the expansion and strengthening of the economic relations between the two countries.
According to Grigoryan, the high level of Armenia’s participation in ExpoDubai-2020 will serve as a new impetus for development of the cooperation between the two countries.
This year, the UAE is celebrating the 48th anniversary of its independence.
