Armenia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs signed a €2.120 million contract with Agence Publics, an ESL&Network company, on April 14 to provide advice regarding the design and implementation of events surrounding 2018 La Francophonie Summit, to be held in Armenia this October, and organizing a concert to mark the 2,800th anniversary of Yerevan.
