The European Union Delegation to Armenia organises a site visit to Vayots Dzor marz, Aghavnadzor and Yelpin communities on 30 October to meet Armenian farmers – subgrant beneficiaries of the European Union ENPARD and OASI projects.
The EU Ambassador to Armenia Piotr Świtalski will take part in this visit. You can find the agenda of the visit attached to this invitation.
The journalists will have the opportunity to see and take stock of results of the European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD) and Organic Agriculture Support Initiative (OASI) project.
Thanks to the technical, financial and training support provided by ENPARD programme "Yerpin", a high-value cheese facility was established in Yelpin community and the OASI provided financial support to the first organic wine company in Armenia, Trinity LLC.
The event targets agricultural projects implemented in Armenia during the recent years with the financial and technical assistance of the European Union, as well as on the new priorities for sustainable development of the sector.
Transportation for journalists is provided. The deadline for media registration is October 29, Monday at 12:00 to reserve the seats.
