In the context of the 2nd Franco-Armenian Meetings for Decentralised Cooperation in Valence from 16 to 17 October 2013, Lyon will be welcoming Armenian mayors on 15th October 2013.


PThese 2nd Meetings will bring together French local authorities, their Armenian partner towns and cities and civilian society, and will allow them to discuss their experiences and their projects around 4 themed workshops:  Sustainable tourism / Education and culture / Development of the local economy and Agricultural development. These meetings will be extended by site visits. 

In the run-up to these Meetings, the official delegations - ministers, ambassadors, and French and Armenian elected officials - will attend a reception at Lyon’s City Hall on 15 October, following a visit to the National Armenian Memorial Centre at Décines.

Lyon and Erevan maintain very close links in terms of cooperation, and this has allowed flagship projects to be implemented, such as the Franco-Armenian Professional Education Centre in Erevan, the Jardin de Lyon and the sending of TCL buses.  The Mayor of Erevan will be present in Lyon to reinforce the dynamic of this partnership in the area of urban development.
