"EXPOARMENIA" PHOTO EXHIBIT IN ARGENTINA
2009/04/01 | 11:43
On March 30, a photo exhibition of the works of Stepan Norayr Shahinyan
entitled "ExpoArmenia" opened in the Cordoba parliament building in
Argentina. On hand to open the exhibition were Vladimir Karmirshalyan,
Armenia’s Ambassador to Argentina, and Francisco Fortunan, Deputy
President of the Cordoba Parliament.
The exhibition is the result of talks held between the deputy speaker
of the Cordoba parliament and the Armenian ambassador that reviewed
the possibilities of economic and cultural relations between the two
countries. An agreement has been reached to establish a sister-region
relationship between Cordoba, where 8,000 Armenians reside, and one
of the regions in Armenia.
The idea behind the exhibition was conceived by the local chapter
of the AGBU. The Ritex Company provided financial assistance for the
event which is being sponsored by the Armenian Embassy in Argentina.
