We have no alternative but to rely on the development of the knowledge-based fields. We are confident that years later, the giants conferred this prestigious award will return to Armenia bringing with them state-of-the-art culture of high-tech, thus raising our state’s credibility and worldwide recognition as a country relying on knowledge and intellect. It is hard to deny that Armenia’s competitive advantages are closely associated with the IT sector and that our country has all prerequisites and necessary resources to become the regional center and an important player.
