  •  

    Решение МФГС

     

    The recognition of Gyumri as the CIS cultural capital 2013 has been accepted by the council session of the CIS country leaders, which took place in Ashkhabat the capital of Turkmenistan on December 5, 2012. The participants of the session approved the “Cultural capital of partnership” interstate project’s regulations. This year Mogilev and Qabala along with Gyumri have been recognized as CIS cultural capitals. 

    The mission of the project is to create a tool which will become a productive means for developing the interstate cultural partnership. This will also benefit the creation of favorable conditions for economic, political collaboration as well as to raise the status of collaboration internationally and to develop the infrastructures, social-economic and humanitarian life of cities and regions. 

    The «Gyumri CIS cultural capital» project was presented on January 25, 2013, when the Humanitarian interstate foundation visited Armenia.

    A special work committee was formed within the framework of this project by the instruction of Deputy Prime Minister Armen Gevorgyan, which consists of representatives of Shirak region and Gyumri local self-government system.
