According to him, for  Jan-Sep 2017, the volume of exports in comparison with the same  period in 2016 increased by 3.6 times.

The head of the Armenian Government stated that the Armenian side is  ready to develop multi-sphere cooperation with Switzerland to attract  the country's capital to Armenia. At the same time, according to him,  Armenia can become an interesting platform for the Swiss business in  terms of entering the markets of the EAEU, as well as IRI through the  deployment of activities in the Meghri FEZ.

Ambassador Lucas Gasser also expressed satisfaction with the emerging  positive dynamics in the sphere of economic cooperation. At this  stage, as he pointed out, new investors visit Armenia to get  acquainted with Armenia's investment climate. According to him, a  number of Swiss companies use the Armenian site to enter the markets  of third countries. He also noted that the FEZ in Meghri may be of  interest to business circles in Switzerland.

The interlocutors also touched upon the establishment of direct air  communication between Armenia and Switzerland, ways to stimulate  tourism, interaction within the FEZ, the possibility of developing  cooperation through joint business forums.
