Over the past 32 years, traditionally warm relations and mutual support have continuously strengthened. The last few years, in particular, have seen a tremendous upward trend in the relations between Armenia and India, especially in political dialogue.

“Foreign investors in Armenia have unrestricted access to invest across all sectors of the economy. They can repatriate profits and exchange foreign currencies freely, with no limitations. Additionally, there are no constraints on staff recruitment, granting foreign investors the flexibility to hire both local residents and compatriots as they see fit,” the Ambassador explained.
