Armenian Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan told the Estonian ambassador to the country that he hopes to expand economic relations between the two nations during a meeting on Tuesday.
Priit Turk, the Ambassador of Estonia to Armenia, said his country is similarly eager to boost ties with Armenia.
“There is great potential for deepening bilateral cooperation,” Abrahamyan said. “I am convinced that through joint effort -- business forums, reciprocated visits -- we will be able to expand bilateral relations in economy and other fields.”
Turk said Armenia has made substantial progress toward improving its business sector, which is an additional incentive for implementing joint trade and economic development programs.
Abrahamyan and Turk also discussed issues related to the development of EU-Armenia relations, with Abrahamyan stressing that Armenia would appreciate having the European Union’s continued assistance as it strives to strengthen democracy, promote human rights and build civil society.
