She also added that for 6 months Armenia being in a single project with Turkey, Georgia and Bulgaria, will draw special attention at development of tourism and agriculture.  "We have some problems linked with rural tourism, in particular, the language barrier of rural residents", - Arakelyan said and added that special training courses to raise qualification of rural residents will be held within the frames of the project. 

To note, the project that costs 472,923.43 EUR, is being financed by the EU within the frames of the Eastern Partnership Programme. The programme started in November 2013 and will last for 18 months.
