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.

      So we see both growth and decline in various monitored sectors of the economy.
      Dispite the sanctions on Russia and the clear ramifications to us , and dispite the illegal and immoral blockade ... we registered a positive growth.
      This growth may look modest, but considering the "headwind" our economy is sailing into, I'm impressed.
      A significant amount of our countries collective economic energy was spent taking the NEGITIVE hits. Yet we register a overall positive growth.
      Our economy and endeavor is stronger than the modest growth indicates.

              Iraq, Syria Sharply Boost Armenian Cigarette Exports


              Հրապարակված է՝ 20.05.2015

              Exports of Armenian cigarettes continued to grow rapidly last year thanks to a near-doubling of their deliveries to Iraq and Syria, their principal markets abroad, according to government statistics.

              Data from the Armenian customs service revealed by Hetq.am shows a more than 71 percent surge in cigarette exports that totaled $116.6 million in 2014. They stood at just $16.3 million in 2011.

              The Iraqi market generated over two-thirds of the Armenian tobacco industry’s total export revenue. This explains why Armenia’s trade with Iraq rose by almost 39 percent to $106 million in 2014.

              The Armenian and Iraqi governments are eager to further expand bilateral trade, mainly carried out through Iran, with growing contacts between their senior officials as well as businesspeople from the two nations. In particular, they helped to launch in February a commercial flight service between Yerevan and Baghdad and Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan where Armenia plans to open a consulate this year.

              Iraq’s Transport Minister Baqir Jabr al-Zubeidi and a delegation of Iraqi businesspeople accompanying him arrived in Armenia on the inaugural Baghdad-Yerevan flight. Zubeidi called for closer Armenian-Iraqi commercial ties during talks with Armenian Economy Minister Karen Chshmaritian in Yerevan.

              Another war-torn Arab state, Syria, became the second most important market for Armenian-made cigarettes in 2014. The Armenian customs service registered an almost six-fold increase in cigarette exports to Syria that were worth $18.2 million.

              Virtually all of those cigarettes were manufactured by three tobacco firms that are part of the Grand Holding group founded by Hrant Vartanian, one of Armenia’s most famous businesspeople who died in April 2014.The conglomerate, which also comprises the country’s largest chocolate and confectionery manufacturer, is now owned and run by his two sons. Much of the tobacco used by it is grown in Armenia.

              Grand Holding’s booming exports also helped to push up output in the broader Armenian tobacco industry. According to the National Statistical Service (NSS), it grew by more than half last year, accounting for 7.6 percent of the country’s overall industrial production.

                Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
                Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
                Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests

                  Yeh not exactly the kind of development we were hoping for. We could follow that up with many other goods though. If there is a market for that good then there is very likely to be other markets for us to penetrate there.

                    I disagree, relative to our overall economy, we are doing well is fields of technology. What we are lacking is manufacturing and production jobs. If this creates jobs, and brings wealth to the country why not? While this may be a declining industry in the top 10 to 20 percent of countries in the world, in most places its an industry that is as strong as ever.
