DAVOS — Prime Minister Karen Karapetian met with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri on the margins of the ongoing World Economic Forum in Davos.

Karen Karapetian noted that traditionally Armenia and Lebanon have enjoyed strong and friendly bilateral relations, and the government of Armenia is keen to further strengthen and deepen them. The Prime Ministers also highlighted the role of the Lebanese-Armenian community in terms of promoting cooperation and strong ties between the two countries.

Karen Karapetian briefed his counterpart on Armenia’s economic developments and the ongoing reforms, noting that quite good economic indicators were recorded last year, and his government is determined to advance the process of reforms.

Touching upon the prospects for cooperation, the Premier advised that, being an EAEU-member country, Armenia benefits from GSP+ trade regime and has signed the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement with the European Union. In addition, our country has very good relations with neighboring Iran and may be interesting for Lebanese businesses and investors.
