U.S. Ambassador to Armenia John A. Heffern and Armenian Deputy Prime Minister Armen Gevorgyan launched a joint anti-corruption awareness project at Zvartnots International Airport today.
The $77,000 project, funded by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of International Security and Non-proliferation, is part of the "Joint Action Plan Between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the Republic of Armenia on Combating Smuggling of Nuclear and Radioactive Materials".
The plan was signed by Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in 2008.
The project is designed to raise the anti-corruption awareness of Armenian and foreign citizens entering or exiting Armenia by explaining the procedures to be followed at border check points and customs houses. Booklets, informational signs and public service announcements on TV and radio were produced, with written materials being translated into English and Russian.
The anti-corruption materials will be distributed and posted at all Armenian border crossing points, including Zvartnots and Shirak International Airports.
