YEREVAN (Arka) — Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian and Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström signed an agreement today on the mutual avoidance of double taxation of income and property and prevention of tax evasion.
Speaking to reporters after the signing ceremony, Nalbandian said the two countries are boosting a multifaceted dialogue on domestic, regional and international issues.

Sweden and Armenia have also reached an agreement on the improvement of their legal framework and encouragement of investment.
