The Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Armenia was welcomed in Lyon in April 2014.


On Wednesday, 23 April 2014 Mr Georges Képénékian, Deputy Mayor met Mr Sergo Karapetyan, Minister of Agriculture from the Republic of Armenia.

In the context of his official visit to France, Mr Sergo Karapetyan, Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Armenia met his French counterpart Mr Stephan le Foll to consider the conditions of a cooperation agreement in the area of agriculture which is to be signed on the occasion of President Hollande’s trip to Armenia on 12 and 13 May 2014.

Mr Karapetyan came to Lyon because of the strong links between Lyon and Erevan forged by cooperation agreements signed and implemented since 1992. The Minister met Mr Georges Képénékian, Deputy Mayor of Lyon for Culture, Events and Citizens’ Rights, and then Regional Councillors in the context of the Region's cooperation with the Association of Communes of Armenia, one part of which is concerned with agri-food issues.
