This event marks a significant alliance between the Switzerland-Armenia Chamber of Commerce and the Geneva Chamber of Commerce (CCIG).

The initiative aimed at bolstering economic ties by sparking the curiosity and interest of Swiss business leaders in the potential of Armenia’s burgeoning economy.

The primary goal is to cast a spotlight on Armenian products and services, thereby positioning them for recognition and integration within the Swiss market’s diverse economic landscape.

The gathering will serve as a pivotal platform for Armenian enterprises along with government delegates to present a comprehensive analysis of the country’s macro-economic environment. They will delve into the sectors brimming with potential and highlight the burgeoning opportunities that the Republic of Armenia offers. This insightful exposition is designed to inform CCIG members and visiting entrepreneurs about the investment prospects.

Furthermore, the occasion is meticulously curated to foster a fertile ground for networking. It aims to weave strong interpersonal and professional connections among Swiss and Armenian business innovators. This cross-cultural economic conclave is not only an avenue for investment and collaboration but also a celebration of the shared vision for prosperity that both Swiss and Armenian entrepreneurs hold dear. The collaborative spirit of this event is a testament to the power of international cooperation in driving forward economic growth and innovation.
