JOHN HEFFERN: AMERICA WANTS TO HELP ARMENIA BE MORE PROSPEROUS AND DEMOCRATIC
“America wants to help Armenia be more prosperous and democratic. More
trade and investment is important. This requires an improved business
climate and more competition. Free market competition creates
business opportunities and makes Armenia more attractive to foreign
investors,” US Ambassador to Armenia John Heffern said in a message
on his video blog.
The Ambassador commemorated Global Economic Statecraft Day,
a worldwide event organized by the U.S. Department of State to
highlight important economic work of U.S. diplomats and development
experts around the world.
The US Embassy in Armenia hosts a private-public dialogue today to
promote competition, the Ambassador informed.
