LONDON (Panarmenian.net, Armenpress) — On July 27, President Serge Sargisian attended a reception given on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II to honor visiting dignitaries and heads of state attending the Olympics.

Earlier the president and his official delegation during his visit to GreatBritain will hold meetings with the representatives of Armenian community of Great Britain.

On July 30, Sargisian attended a reception organized by Hayastan All-Armenian Fund’s British chapter.

President Serge Sargisian is flanked by Bishop Vahan Hovhanessian and Armenia’s Ambassador to the UK Karine Kazinian, as well as other guests at a reception in his honor.

“The more powerful and developed the Republic of Armenia is, the stronger each Diaspora Armenian feels,” he said, hailing the fund’s efforts in uniting diaspora institutions and representatives.

Sargisian further briefed the participants on Armenia’s current economic situation, development programs and prospects, as well as the steps taken to overcome the consequences of the global financial crisis.

“Armenian Diasporan representatives can greatly contribute to development of their homeland through investments and involvement in reform implementation,” he said.
