Armenia

Armenia was once considered the “Silicon Valley” of the Soviet Union. The first computer was created and assembled in Armenia in 1960. Today, with the growth of our private sector, we have declared our objective of seeing Armenia become a provider of intellectual services. This Summit is important to us, since we look forward to establishing common rules in the field to which we give priority in advancing our economy. Today, the software and IT services comprise 1.7 per cent of Armenia’s gross domestic product (GDP). That places Armenia among high-growth countries in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT).
