Scheduled across 3 days, the conference brings together specialists from many countries to network, share experience and build new partnerships worldwide. Participants will analyze previous year’s performance, review success stories and discuss potential future avenues for cooperation.
Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for International Economic Integration and Reforms of the Republic of Armenia Vache Gabrielyan spoke at the event welcoming the guests.
“”It is very important for Armenia to host consulting companies which will help shape organizations and institutions correctly and ensure economic growth,” Gabrielyan said.
Also, the deputy PM mentioned that the conference enables the Armenia-based firms to participate in competitions organized elsewhere.
ICA founder, IBF CEO Frédéric André said that ICA has always sought to provide closer interaction between international and local companies, which would help enhance the efficiency of partnerships and enable countries to win more international tenders.
