Central Bank of Armenia committed to turning Dilijan into regional financial center

YEREVAN, March 9, /ARKA/. The governor of Armenian Central Bank, Arthur Javadian, said last Friday the plan to transform a resort town of Dilijan in northeastern Tavush province into a regional financial center was not thrown away.

‘In three years we shall complete construction of a financial-training center of the Central Bank in Dilijan which later will become a regional financial center in accordance with our declared strategy,’ he said to journalists after inaugurating a new branch of Ameriabank in this town.

Arthur Javadian said the global economic crisis has made them slow down several projects, ‘but we are committed to all our declarations. The Central Bank will move part of its departments to Dilijan and that we expect will push other banks to move part of their facilities to Dilijan as well.’

The question of creation of a regional financial center in Dilijan was first discussed in 2008 May during a financial-banking forum that was attended by the president and prime minister of Armenia.
