The Prime Minister stressed the need to intensify the activities of the Armenian-German Intergovernmental Commission by tapping the potential inherent in bilateral economic cooperation.
Thankful for the warm welcome, Ambassador Banzhaf said relations between Armenia and Germany have been reinvigorated following the Velvet Revolution as the country is taking sustained steps to develop and strengthen democratic institutions.
“Your country is making great progress in the fight against corruption, and the German government will continue to help Armenia promote effective reforms,” he said. The Ambassador stressed that German tourists’ interest for Armenia has increased considerably over the past year due to the changes underway in the country.
