Armenian companies to discuss cooperation with Swedish firms

The Armenian government announced last week that Armenian companies in telecommunications, energy, health, education and others will be discussing the possibility of cooperative programs with several firms in Sweden.

The decision was made during a meeting between Hovik Abrahamyan, the prime minister of Armenia, and a delegation from Sweden led by Eva Bjorling, Sweden's minister of trade and northern cooperation, ARKA reports.

"We are impressed with the level of cellular communication development in Armenia and this in mind we will continue to assist Armenia in the introduction of digital television," Bjorling said after the meeting in which the delegation presented to the Armenian National Cancer Center a linear accelerator on behalf of the Swedish government, according to ARKA.

The Swedish companies involved include Ericsson, ABB, Elekta and Education First, the latter of which will open a representative office in the country, according to its president Johan Westring.

"The Armenian government will do everything possible to further strengthen and deepen the relations between our countries," Abrahamyan said, ARKA said.
