He presented his new program in Armenia through which he has purchased and capitally renovated the Soviet-era Pioneer Camp in Hankavan and is planning on carrying out various programs to bring young Diaspora Armenians to Armenia where they will be introduced and become connected to the homeland, contribute to Armenia’s advancement, and some of them might even repatriate.

Levon Aharonian suggested working together and stated that he would be glad to host the participants of the “Ari Tun” Program. He also talked about his new investment project and invited the Minister to participate in the opening ceremony of his Annabella Hotel in Arabkir in May of this year. “Whatever I do, I do it for Armenians and Armenia,” the Iranian-Armenian businessman concluded.
