Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    YEREVAN. – Spayka company of Armenia is launching the production of blue cheese.


    https://news.am/eng/news/385444.html

    Head of the Project Management Division at Spayka, Karen Baghdasaryan, informed about the aforesaid at a press conference on Wednesday.

    “Studying the Russian market, we [Spayka] saw that there is huge potential,” said Baghdasaryan. “At present, contracts already have been signed for exporting more than 1,000 tons of blue cheese per year, from Armenia to Russia.”

    The respective cheese factory will operate in Kotayk Province of Armenia.

    The company plans to invest about $15 million per year for the production of cheese and other dairy products.

    In 2017, Spayka will implement several major projects, and as a result, 390 new jobs will be created and about $70 million will be invested in Armenia.

    In 2016, the company exported more than 100,000 tons of goods from the country. In the current year, it plans to increase exports by 20 percent, and by expanding its export markets and including the countries of the European Union and the Middle East.

But the company seems to be behaving like your textbook conglomerate. Kudos for him! Thanks for sharing. Hopefully he becomes a bigger freight forwarder in all of the CIS. It's a good business, and one that I am in.
      Agree with you! I hope it is Armenian owned company.

        Reporting live from Armenia: rumor has it its Kocharians sons and Serges sons business in exporting. Rumor has it they're going to start exporting to Italy. I say rumor because everything in this country seems to be a rumor.

          I have eaten some great cheese in Armenia. The best ones were from the people who make them for themselves, like the sheppards in the mountains. The cheese I bought at the store that was locally made was also very good! I wish they would export to USA. Cheese prices here are crazy.

            There are many things that are exported from Armenia.

            The issue has to be, is the foreign exchange coming into Armenia or going into some offshore account.

              The first stage of the negotiations between the Republic of Armenia and the European Union on the Comprehensive Air Transport Agreement (Common Aviation Area between the Republic of Armenia and the European Union) has been kicked off.
              “The Common Aviation Area Agreement will help to enhance tourism & trade, allow more EU citizens discover beautiful Armenia,” Head of the EU Delegation to Armenian Piotr Switalski said at thexopening of the negotiations.
              “This is a beautiful day because the relations between Armenia and the European Union are getting a new positive impetus,” he said.
              The negotiating group of the Armenian side will be headed by the Head of the General Department of Civil Aviation of the Republic of Armenia Sergey Avetisyan.
              Negotiating delegation from the European Union side is headed by the Deputy Head of Unit for Aviation Agreements of the European Commission xKlaus Geil.
              In the frames of this agreement the Republic of Armenia will join the EU Common Aviation Area, and as a result the parties will liberalize the market, providing the airlines with the opportunity to operate the routes without any limitations and enjoy equal opportunities of servicing a market with a population of 500 million.
              The effective European standards will be introduced in the Republic of Armenia and the Armenian and foreign airlines will be provided with the opportunity to operate air routes based on commercial considerations without any limiting interference by the states.
              We should note that on 1 December of 2016 the Council of EU Transport Ministers adopted a mandate that allowed the European Commission to start negotiations with the Republic of Armenia.

                  Armenia announces tender for 55 MW solar project
                  The Armenian Ministry of Energy Infrastructure and Natural Resources has prequalified ten companies in the preliminary phase of the tender for the project, which will be located in Masrik, Gegharkunik province, in the eastern part of Armenia.
                  May 2, 2017 Emiliano Bellini

                  Armenia’s Ministry of Energy Infrastructure and Natural Resources announced it will issue a tender for the construction of a 55 MW PV power plant in Masrik, Gegharkunik province, eastern Armenia. State-owned press agency Arka reports that already 40 unspecified developers have expressed interest in the project, and that only 10 were prequalified for the tender.
                  Deputy Minister Hayk Harutyunyan said the project’s required investment should be between $40 million and $60 million. The tender is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of next year. The minister also said that the project could be expanded to 100 MW at a later stage, depending on the investor’s interest.
                  The project is part of the national plan for the development of renewable energies and is one of six PV plants with a combined capacity of 110 MW that the government is currently supporting through a recently created ad hoc commission.
                  The commission is formed by representatives from the Ministry of Energy Infrastructure and Natural Resources, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Development and Investments, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Central Bank and the State Services Regulatory Commission.
                  In late April, the Republic of Armenia Ministry of Economic Development and Investment announced it exempted solar project developers from paying customs duties on the import of PV components for the first time.
                  In mid-April, the Ministry of Energy announced the start of construction on the country’s third 1 MW PV plant being developed under the special tariff regime introduced by the Armenian Public Services regulation commission (PSRC) in December 2016.
                  The Armenian government is currently supporting PV projects up to 1 MW through a FIT scheme and residential and commercial solar up to 150 kW through net-metering.
                  Armenia’s six-year $58 million solar program is directed by the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Foundation, a non-governmental organization whose mission is to facilitate investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy in Armenia. The scheme is also supported by the Climate Investment Funds, the Armenian Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, the World Bank, and the Asian Development Bank.

                    Finally. Solar and Wind power is something Armenia can not only use, but also build. Solar Power especially. We have everything domestically ready to build these things. Wind power in Armenia has about a 500mw exploitable opportunity. Seems like a good target and project for the government to try to take.
