EU funded Initiative for Armenia
The German Development Cooperation (GIZ), in the framework of the “EU Targeted Initiative for Armenia project”, has organized mentoring or short-term training courses in Armenia, with the aim of building the capacities of Armenian companies from various industries, by transferring the best available knowledge and experience through the Armenian Diaspora.
In this context, the GIZ has invited Viken Boyadjian to make a presentation to the Jewelry designers in Armenia, and organize training seminars for goldsmiths in major Armenian jewelry companies. The presentations will be held from October 26 to 30.
With the above perspective, it would be interesting to consider opening a professional jewelry school in Armenia. As part of its budget framework agreement of “Eastern Partnership”, the EU would probably take over part of the financing of such a project.
The most important, however, is the transfer of French expertise, which can be realized with the help of French teachers.
