“What do you do for Karabakh?”
Movement initiated by the Ministry of Diaspora found a wide response
The Ministry of Diaspora has declared 2017 the year of Artsakh. At a press conference held in the press-hall of “Armenpress” News Agency, Serzh Srapionyan, the Deputy Minister of Diaspora of the Republic of Armenia, stated that the movement entitled “What do you do for Karabakh?” gave occasion for such response.
This movement has become one of the main goals of the Armenian communities in Germany, Netherlands, France, USA, Canada, Brazil, Uruguay, and other countries.
Besides material assistance, different events are planned to be organized this year in Artsakh. Particularly, a great musical festival under the title “For you, Artsakh” is envisaged to be held in June, 2017. Both children’s and adults’ song and dance groups from the Diaspora will perform during the festival.
Businessmen from the Diaspora are interested in the issue of making investments in Artsakh. “The Ministry of Diaspora already received letters from some businessmen whom we know well and they want to be aware of the possibilities for investments existing in Artsakh, as well as the priorities of the Republic’s economy. We are in close contact with the government of Artsakh and the structures which are busy in implementing investment projects. We have already submitted some proposals, but it should be noted that the Ministry of Diaspora is only a linking ring in that terms,” said Serzh Srapionyan.
“The idea of the significance of Artsakh firmly creeps over us. Many people realize that these are not simply investments, but through them we contribute to strengthening of the Artsakh Republic. By the way, tourism development in Artsakh will be also emphasized. Artsakh has great possibilities in terms of tourism development,” added Serzh Srapionyan.
