 The Armenian Government gives high priority to increasing the IT product output in the local market, growth in services consumption, and increasing the innovative IT solutions in various sectors of economy, Armenian Deputy Minister of Economy Garegin Melkonyan said at today's press conference timed to the 7th annual DigiTec Business forum. In this context, he stressed the significance of the DigiTec forum, which contributes to consolidation of the technological field and strengthening of the business ties. Melkonyan also called on the local entrepreneurs to take an active part in the forum.  

Karen Vardanyan, CEO at the Union of IT Enterprises, pointed out that now entrepreneurs themselves present their own requirements and tasks to technological companies.  "In 2008, when the first DigiTec Business forum was held, information technologies were not so popular. Earlier it was necessary to explain to the entrepreneurs that the use of IT would enhance the efficiency of their activity", he said. 

"A socially responsible operator, ArmenTel consistently assists the projects aimed at supporting IT and telecommunication. The DigiTec Business forum has a special place in this process. I am sure that the innovative ideas to be presented at the forum, which is being held with the support ArmenTel, will boost the development of the field and contribute to further cooperation among the forum participants", said Andrey Pyatakhin, Director General of ArmenTel CJSC. 
To recall, the seventh annual DigiTec Business forum will take place on 20-21 June 2014 at Marriott Armenian Hotel in Yerevan. The forum is organized by the UITE and sponsored by ArmenTel (Beeline brand). This year about 50 Armenian, Russian and Georgian companies will participate in the forum.  Nearly 3,000 guests will attend the forum, about 500 of them will be the heads and representatives of local and foreign companies.
