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.

        Syrian-Armenians move their chocolate business to Armenia


        Author Hasmik Hambardzumyan

        Syrian-Armenian Sosi Temirchian arrived in Armenia in 2012. She has been engaged in chocolate production in Syria for 15 years. During the war, she moved to Armenia with her family to continue her work here.

        Presenting their pavilion full of chocolate, Mrs Sosi said that they didn’t want to do anything else in Armenia, but to continue their business.

        “This is what we now, so we started working. It will get better little by little,” Mrs Sosi said.

        Their production includes Vivaldi Chocolate, Harry Chocolate and the new King George assortment.
        They also produce gifts for all kinds of celebrations, including weddings, christenings, birthdays etc.
        The Syrian-Armenian woman has moved to Armenia with her husband and two sons.

        “We’ve left everything in Syria, our house, our fortune,” Mrs Sosi said.

        Concerning returning to Syria, she said that they don’t intend going back because it’s better living in one’s own motherland.

          ^^^ aman babam some of these Syrian Armenians nag so much and spread negative rumors about Armenia, it's becoming a joke.
          They don't assess their situation and the country they're coming from. They are not aware that Syria is a classical dictatorship country where you have to be on your knees for the immortal leader. They nag and nag and nag about Armenia and tell you how great Syria was.
          If it was that great of a country with a great leader, why is it in this condition now?

              Iranian businessman denied access to Armenia’s petrol market

              YEREVAN, May 25. /ARKA/.

              Arshia Monjezi, an Iranian entrepreneur, has been barred from entering Armenia's market, Zhamanak reports.

              According to the newspaper, he was warned against entering Armenian market a few months ago, when he wanted to start importing petrol into Armenia from Iran.

              Remarkable is that Hovik Abrahamyan, Armenia's prime minister, swore recently before members of the National Assembly that there is no monopoly at Armenia’s liquid fuel market and anybody who wants may import fuel into the country.

              One liter of ‘Regular’ petrol is sold in Armenia at 390 drams, while in neighboring Georgia its price is only 250 drams.

              Taking into account all his expenses, the Iranian entrepreneur was going to supply petrol to Armenia and sell it at 270 to 290 drams per liter.

              “We have always said that petrol can be brought to Armenia from Iran, Turkmenistan and other countries, if desired, and this will be far cheaper,” Arshia Monjezi is quoted by the newspaper as saying.

              “The bulk of petrol comes to Armenia from Russia, and they decide how much it will cost.”

              Monjezi is convinced that this is not a simple problem that can be solved. He stated that contrary to the Armenian prime minister’s statement, there is a monopoly at Armenian market and that he will not make another attempt to enter Armenia’s market, since it is doomed to failure.

                Bad move. Constrains Armenia to Russia gas only at a higher price and hurts relations with Iran and furthermore discourages increased investment and ties with Armenia and a good neighbor. This also reeks of corruption.

                    Government Committed To Antitrust Measures, Insists Minister

                    http://www.azatutyun.am/content/arti...ել

                    Nane Sahakian
                    Հրապարակված է՝ 26.05.2016

                    The government is serious about its pledges to de-monopolize lucrative imports of essential goods and commodities to Armenia, Economy Minister Artsvik Minasian insisted on Thursday.

                    Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamian has vowed to put in place “equal conditions” for all importers as part of sweeping reforms announced by him earlier this month. He said that the Armenian government will step up its fight against corruption and radically improve the domestic business environment in view of new security challenges facing the country.

                    Abrahamian told the Ministry of Economy and state anti-trust regulators to “analyze” within the next three weeks the impact of de facto monopolies on economic competition in the country. Companies owned by government-linked businesspeople have long controlled imports of fuel and basic foodstuffs, something which economists regard as a major hurdle to faster economic growth.

                    Minasian said that his ministry will release soon a detailed report on the monopolies. As part of the same effort, it has drawn up “explanatory” booklets for businessmen interested in importing about a dozen items, including fuel, wheat and sugar. Minasian unveiled them at a weekly cabinet meeting in Yerevan.

                    Minasian, who was appointed as minister in March following a power-sharing deal struck by his Armenian Revolutionary Federation party with President Serzh Sarkisian, dismissed lingering media and opposition skepticism about the government’s stated reform drive.

                    “Instead of joining forces to put that policy into practice, as soon as something good is done we criticize and complain about why it hasn’t been done before,” Minasian told journalists. “I not only believe [in the seriousness of the reform promise] but am also fighting for that.”

                    Critics argue that that many senior government officials have personally benefitted from business “oligopolies” and heavily relied on them for political support.

                      Financial resources coming to Armenia from Eurasian Economic Union budget shrunk

                      YEREVAN, May 27. /ARKA/. The flow of financial resources from the Eurasian Economic Union’s common budget to Armenia has dwindled, Haykakan Zhamanak (Armenian Time) reports.

                      According to the newspaper, in April’s customs receipts from the Eurasian Economic Union budget to Armenia totaled AMD 4.4 billion, and this amount is smaller than that of the same month a year before by AMD 0.5 billion.
