MISSION OF THE FORUM OF ARMENIAN ASSOCIATIONS OF EUROPE

As there are more than two million Armenians in Europe, forming significant local communities in 26 different countries, the FAAE was founded in Geneva in 1998. Its goal is to facilitate co-operation and solidarity among Armenian communities in Europe in order to meet the changing needs of the European Diaspora and to promote the interests of Armenia and Karabagh. FAAE membership is open to any Armenian association in Europe that has democratically elected representatives and which agrees to adhere to the FAAE charter.

Included in the FAAE today are Armenian communities and organisations from 18 countries of Eastern and Western Europe. The Forum is pluralistic and deals with all issues of interest to its member organisations, including international relations, human rights issues, economic co-operation and cultural matters.

 

OBJECTIVES OF THE ARMENIAN BUSINESS FORUM OF EUROPE

The Armenian Business Forum of Europe is organised in such a way to respond to the needs of Armenian businessmen in Europe to meet, discuss their common interests and create the necessary network of contacts to their respective businesses. Representatives of the US and Russian business communities are also present at these meetings.
