Employment and decent work
The focus of the project is to support labour migrants and their families to convert their migration potential into creation of innovative business models and start-ups in their communities in Aragatsotn and Shirak regions. Many Armenian labour migrants, who have intention to return and invest in their country, have to continue the circle of labour migration for many years to be able to accumulate financial capital and start an enterprise in their homeland. While away from the home country, migrants gain new capacities and can bring expertise from the host countries. The goal of the project is to maximize the contribution of the Armenian circular labour migrants to the development of their communities through the repatriation of skills, experiences and financial capital from the host country to their communities of return.
Another important target of the Project is foreigners and Armenians abroad interested to invest into clusters, value chains and businesses in Armenia.
