On 11 May 2018, Armenia joined the large European family to celebrate Europe Day. In the morning, Armenia’s President, Armen Sarkissian visited the European Union Delegation to Armenia to congratulate and wish peace and prosperity. Later the EU Ambassador Piotr Świtalski announced the launch of the pan-European holiday in Armenia which was kicked off with a fashion exhibition organised jointly with the Fashion and Design Chamber of Armenia. Ambassador informed about the upcoming events: ‘We consider Armenia as a member of the larger European family. I invite the Armenian pubic to join us during Europe Day celebrations, which we consider to be a shared occasion, a shared opportunity to show that we belong to the same family. This year, for the first time, Ijevan and Hrazdan will host these celebrations. We will also visit, as usual, Gyumri, Vanadzor, Kapan, Yeghegnadzor and, of course, Yerevan. As always, we dedicate many of our activities to youth, the future of this country’.
