The Iranian Trade Center in Yerevan is scheduled to open in April-May 2024.  AIBDC has taken the initiative to become a kind of a bridge of economic opportunities between Iran, Armenia and Belarus and, taking into account the production potential of our country, suggested hosting a permanent showroom with Belarusian products on the basis of the centre on conditions favourable for the Belarusian side (without rent and utility charges).

The Armenian-Belarusian trading house "Ar-Be" will act as a single operator of this project from the Belarusian side.

Currently, work is underway to attract Belarusian business entities to participate in filling the showroom, developing the design of pavilions and their construction.
