have an opportunity to get familiarized with the Armenian culture and
ethnic flavor of the country of `speaking stones.'

May 15, 2010

The events initiated by the National Competitiveness Foundation of
Armenia, the USAID-funded Competitive Armenian Private Sector (CAPS)
Project in partnership with the RA Ministry of Economy brought
together representatives of tourism industry, educational
establishments, hotels and restaurants, as well as experts and
journalists from Armenia, Georgia, Turkey and other countries.
