Cabinet approves opening Armenia Consulate General in Dubai

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenian Government on Thursday, January 12 approved a presidential decree on establishing a Consulate General in Dubai, UAE.

According to information posted on the government's website, the move is conditioned by the fact that Dubai is one of the world's most important trade and economic centers.

The number of Armenian nationals in the Emirates and Dubai, in particular, varies anywhere between 2500-3000. Four to five regular flights are carried out every week, with Armenians using the city as a transit point too. Around 70 consulates currently operate in Dubai.

Also, the government explains the decision by geographical proximity of Armenia to the UAE, as well as the interest shown by Emirati business circles towards Armenia.

"In addition to consular mission, the establishment of the representative office will provide an opportunity to perform activities aimed at the promotion and development of trade-economic and investment cooperation," the government said earlier.
