To further enhance Armenia's global economic presence, Kerobyan announced the country's participation in major international exhibitions. Armenia will showcase its economic potential at one of the largest exhibitions in China in November this year. The country is also set to participate in a significant event in the UAE in February 2024. These exhibitions will provide Armenia with the opportunity to forge new partnerships and explore diverse economic prospects on the global stage.
