“We are hopeful of forging new business relationships with our Emirati partners and enriching our bilateral economic agenda, sharing experience and knowledge with the technologically advanced community to develop ambitious cooperation,” the minister said in an interview with the Emirates News Agency (WAM).
“The development of education through technology, the involvement of women in government and the development of society, the empowerment of youth, a favorable investment climate have led to the UAE becoming a platform where scientists and cultural figures, experts and researchers, world leaders and host solutions, offer new ideas for solving potential global problems. “
“In recent years, Armenia and the United Arab Emirates have come closer, and cooperation between the two countries in trade, tourism, energy, medical services, technology, infrastructure and the financial sector has increased,” he added, noting that the alliance still has potential for growth. …
Speaking about Expo 2020 Dubai, he said that the event served to unite minds and an opportunity to best solve the problems facing humanity, find collective solutions for them and create a new model of the global community.
The Minister explained that Expo 2020 Dubai is “a big step towards getting back to our daily lives,” noting Expo 2020 Dubai’s efforts to implement COVID-19 security measures and provide visitors with an unforgettable experience and opportunity.

Speaking about his country’s participation in Expo 2020 Dubai, Kerobyan said that the concept of Armenia’s participation is built around the idea of ”Ethnotech”, representing the ethnic characteristics and technological aspirations of his country.
“Our participation in the exhibition is intended to show our capabilities, investment environment and the attractiveness of Armenia,” he added. “But many people are not aware of the fact that Armenians have historically also been at the forefront of innovation. We are responsible for day-to-day technologies such as MRI machines, ATM machines, color televisions, etc. It spills over into today, ”he said. This spills over into today’s technology industry; just a couple of weeks ago Armenia presented the world with a technological unicorn – PICSART ”.
“Armenia’s participation in this mega-event is an incredible opportunity to present its culture and economic potential to the world community, share innovations and establish cooperation.”

Our visitors will be invited to download the application in order to be able to interactively touch the culture of Armenia ”.
The Tree of Life is a show stopper! Armenians live all over the world. More than 60 percent of Armenians live outside their homeland. All these Armenians have roots in their homeland. They innovate, create and complement other societies. They create LIFE. Holographic technologies are used here to bring this unique experience to life, ”the minister added.
