Why to invest in Armenia ?

Investment opportunities: The investment and trade policies of Armenia are considered to be the most open in the CIS by international organizations. Foreign companies are encouraged to invest and are entitled by law to the same treatment as local companies. Moreover, they have a great number of advantages. Armenia's investment climate is continuously improving with a strong government commitment to attract the FDI, including the refinement of the legislative framework.

  The Law on Foreign Investment, adopted in July 1994, regulates foreign investment in Armenia. It provides guarantees to foreign investors and protects investors from changes in the business related laws for five years. According to the Law, a "Foreign Investor" is any foreign company or citizen, a person without citizenship, an Armenian citizen permanently residing outside of Armenia, or an international organization that invests in Armenia. "Foreign investment" is any form of property, including financial assets and intellectual property, which is invested by a foreign investor directly in the territory of Armenia, in any economic or other venture.
