The First International Forum of Eurasian Partnership was launched in Yerevan. The Prime Minister of Armenia Karen Karapetyan in his welcoming speech has noted:

– We are glad to welcome you all in Yerevan, one of the oldest cities of the world.  My nation’s most distinctive characteristic is the hospitality. If you are here today, then you are friends of our country.

The Prime Minister in his speech noted that this platform is efficient, when colleagues meet, people who think alike, to achieve an optimal solution, to exchange experience, to create conditions for business development.

– Despite the high level of the Armenian-Russian relations, international integration processes that are taking place in the Eurasian Partnership can only help to that. I am glad to welcome the participants of the Forum. Thank You for your work. I wish you fruitful work. I am very glad that there are people who have also taken part in previous forums, which shows the effectiveness of such conferences.
