On the initiative of the eminent pk musician Serge Tankyan, as well as Alexis Ohanyan, Yervand Zoryan and Eric Israelyan, the HighConnect IT platform will be launched, connecting Armenians from all over the world. As the Minister of High-Tech Industry of Armenia Hakob Arshakyan stated at the press conference on October 8, the agreement on the launch of the "Armenian Virtual Bridge" project, within the framework of which this platform will be launched, was signed the day before during the visit to the project initiators in Silicon Valley.
Serj Tankian explained that the platform will provide an opportunity to unite Armenians from all over the world, in particular representatives of professional groups for networking, cooperation in various industries or just for communication between people with similar interests.
Alexis Ohanyan added that the idea of launching such a platform has been discussed for over a year. <We are very pleased that we can implement all our experience. Because 10 million Armenians who live in 80 countries of the world should have a connection and prosper>, he emphasized, noting that, when creating the HighConnect platform, the project initiators did not pursue commercial goals. According to Minister Arshakyan, the launch of such a platform will help become a global virtual center for Armenia. "If we launch HighConnect in an institutional way, I'm sure it will be attractive and affordable," he emphasized.
