Noah news is good news: Armenia is prominent among the countries who lay claim to be the final resting place of Noah's Ark. The Ararat Mountains mentioned in the Bible, although technically in Turkey, are iconic for the Armenians and the name Armenia is derived from Hayk their great patriarch who is believed to have been the great-great-grandson of Noah. Many expeditions, some academic and some seriously not academic, have tried to find the remains of the Ark, so far with no success.

Armenia in Profile

With a history stretching back to the Stone Age, Armeniais one of the oldest civilizations in the world. It was among the first centres of metallurgy and Yerevan established over 2,800 years ago is one of the world's oldest cities. In the fourth Century, the Kingdom of Armenia was the first state to adopt Christianity as its religion.

The independent Armenia which existed for a short period of time after the collapse of The Ottoman Empire was unstable and was incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1922. Armenia regained its independence in 1991. Whilst present day Armenia still face many hardships, wealth is being created in new manufacturing sectors such as jewellery and precious stones and services such as IT and tourism.

Overview of Trade and Industry

According to the CIA World Factbook: Armenia exported $USD 714m of produce in 2009 - a mix of pig iron, unwrought copper, nonferrous metals, diamonds, mineral products, foodstuffs and energy. Their main export partners were Russia, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Georgia, Bulgaria and the USA. Imports in the same year cost $USD 2.72bn, consisting of gas, petroleum, tobacco products, foodstuffs and diamonds, mostly from Russia, China, Ukraine, Turkey, Germany, the USA and Iran.

Since independence, Armenia's history has been marred by the outbreak of armed conflict between Karabakh Armenians and Azerbaijan, which effectively crippled Armenia's economy. In recent years, Armenia still faces many hardships - but is improving and has made the switch to a full market economy.
