The head of the Moscow branch of the Union of Armenians of Russia Shahen Petrosyan, is in Artsakh to outline the programs to be implemented in the near future.
We will try to create a program where not only large, but also medium-sized business reps will be involved. Moscow-based Armenian businessman
STEPANAKERT, FEBRUARY 26, ARTSAKHPRESS: In an interview with “Artsakhpress”, Shahen Petrosyan said that he met with President Bako Sahakyan and they have discussed a number of issues relating to the projects to be implemented in Artsakh by the representatives of the Armenian community in Russia.
"Armenians in Russia are ready to implement projects, but no one has idea about the implementation mechanism. They don’t know which fields need support. Naturally, we keep in contact with the companies operating in Artsakh, but we should develop a program to involve not only large, but also medium-sized business representatives, who are ready to establish a small enterprise or participate in small projects. I am glad that President Sahakyan has made very useful proposals, "said Sh. Petrosyan.
According to him, in this way they will be able to create a bridge, as a result of which many Armenians will be interested in visiting Artsakh, developing their business and will be more consolidated.
Moscow-based Armenian businessman believes that it is necessary to create a practical field, as it is a large-scale project that considers visits, works which will ensure permanent connection with Artsakh.
"I will also meet with the former Prime Minister of the Republic of Artsakh Arayik Harutyunyan. I am going to discuss a number of issues with him. Arayik Harutyunyan's opinion is also very important because he is experienced in the region, aware of the requirements and we would like to make steps taking into account opinions of well-informed and experienced people. The homeland is a priority for us.
During the April war, we realized that many Armenians want to be useful to the homeland. And now it is the right time to build that bridge, " noted Sh. Petrosyan.
