SAN FRANCISCO (Armenpress)—The Armenian high ranking official delegation was hosted at Reddit headquarters on June 9.
The delegation arrived in the U.S. to take part in the “Armenia-IT forum” conference.
Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, posted on Instagram/Facebook saying “It was an honor to welcome the Armenian Ministers of Economy, and of Labor and Social Protection — amazing things to come!”
The delegation includes Minister of Economy, Artsvik Minasyan, Deputy Economy Minister, Emil Tarasyan, EIF director, Bagrat Engibaryan, and economist, Tatul Manaseryan.
Reddit CEO Steve Huffman was also present during the meeting.
The ArmTech Congress’ annual conference, which this year is entitled “Armenia-IT Forum,” will be held in the Synopsys Mountain View campus of the Silicon Valley from June 10-11. The conference is held under the high patronage of the Prime Minister of Armenia, Hovik Abrahamyan.
The Forum provides an opportunity for tech industry leaders “to network, share ideas and identify investment opportunities in Armenia with CEOs, venture capitalists, academics, and entrepreneurs,” Business Wire says.
“Between 2008 and 2013 Armenia saw 22% growth in its technology sector year-over-year, and continues to foster startups and talent through education initiatives as well as recently adopted legislation designed to make launching and growing a startup, incubator, accelerator, or research organization much easier.”
