Updated: Sep 26


The “Shirak Expo 2010” kicked off in Gyumri last week. Aimed at strengthening civil society, development and reducing poverty especially in the remote areas of Georgia and Armenia by exposing Gyumretzi to various initiatives, the event attracted representatives from international organizations as well as notable business participants and local politicians.


Agricultural cultivation and investment companies, food and textile enterprises, and several farmers unions presented at the exhibition. Gyumri’s mayor Vardan Ghukasyan attended, as did the Center for Agribusiness and Rural Development (CARD), an economic development organization, and the humanitarian organization CARE, which helped to organize the event. Businessmen from other provinces were also invited to partake. For the first time ever, Georgian businesses were able to present their products to Gyumri residents.
