ArmInfo. The delegation of the Republic of Armenia for the first time participated in the exhibition "Direct Foreign Investments", which was held on November 27-28 in London, the press service of the Ministry of Economy of Armenia reports.
According to the source, the event united under one roof a number of companies, suppliers, experts, consultants, investment policy specialists, free economic zones organizers, and investor support agencies looking for new opportunities for business expansion. Visitors to the expo were introduced to the investment potential of Armenia and the advantages of the business environment in Armenia, in particular, the "eRegulations Armenia" platform, where step by step the procedures that are important for the investor are presented. It was noted that the site will become a guide for starting a business in Armenia for those who plan to expand their activities in Armenia.
The electronic platform "eRegulations Armenia" was created thanks to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and with funding from the Austrian Development Agency. The new electronic platform will allow everyone to get electronic public services from the "one window". On May 31 this year the presentation of the armenia.eregulations.org platform took place.
As Artak Poghosyan, head of the E-Governance Program as a Tool for Attracting Foreign Investment, told reporters, through this platform it will be possible to open your own company or get a resident card (for a year or five years). Entrepreneurs will be able to register intellectual property in their technologies. And when they start releasing their goods in Armenia, the platform will be useful to them again: through it they will be able to receive certificates of origin for their goods. All this can be done electronically. Here, in the system, business or individuals will be able to conclude a contract for utilities (electricity, gas, water). This feature will be available soon. It was noted that with the help of the new system, a foreign investor will be able to open an enterprise in Armenia, sitting at a computer, without the need to "run through the authorities." And this will increase the attractiveness of Armenia for foreign investors.
