ArmInfo. The State Tourism Committee is a kind of a startup, which will surely show its worth, Zarmine Zeytuntsyan, Head of the State Tourism Committee of Armenia, which was founded in October 2016, said at a press conference on Feb 24, when replying to ArmInfo's question. She touched on the activities the Committee is going to carry out to enhance the image of Armenia.
Zeytuntsyan noted that the key goal of the State Tourism Committee is to enhance the tourism image of Armenia. She added that the Committee will launch an official Russian-language version to raise the information accessibility for Russian tourists. In addition, well-known blog writers and journalists are expected to visit Armenia to publish interesting articles about Armenia on their information platforms. "Representatives of one of the most popular media corporations will come to Armenia from Russia in a few days to make a story about the winter tourism capacities. In September they will prepare stories about Armenia in general," she said.
To enhance the country's recognizability on the tourism map of the world, a Road Show will be organized in Russia this year. "We will show Armenia not only to Moscow, but also to St. Petersburg and other Russian cities with large populations," Zeytuntsyan noted.
She also pointed out that a popular blog writer, the author of a very popular recipe book will shortly visit Armenia. "I do not want to specify the blog writer's name. But following the visit the author will publish a book covering not only the Armenian cuisine, but also other interesting facts about Armenia," she said, noting that the book will be published in December 2018. "The author will stay here for a month and the schedule of his visits is already approved. But the results of his stay in Armenia will be tangible in a year and a half," Zeytuntsyan said.
