Precision Engineering highlighted at DigiTec EXPO 2017

DigiTec EXPO 2017 has officially kicked off today gathering over 150 companies presenting high-tech, IT, and innovative products and solutions, some of them quite new to the market but with significant growth potential. This year a special section was devoted to the sector of Precision Engineering for the first time, which is defined as a priority sector for development by the RA Government. This was made possible by the Support to SME Development (SMEDA) Project. Hence, 9 companies and institutions presenting the Armenian PE were given the opportunity to present their products and solutions to the technology world.

The event was officially opened and attended by the RA President Serzh Sargsyan, accompanied by the RA Government officials, diplomats and international delegates. The President toured the exhibition stands, got familiar with the products and solutions of the exhibitors. He showed high interest in the Precision Engineering section at the expo and had a conversation with H.E. Matthias Kiesler, German Ambassador to Armenia and SMEDA’s Team leader Eva Naeher regarding the support that SMEDA is providing to the PE sector with funding from the EU and the German Government.

Apart from supporting the Armenian PE companies to be present at the expo, SMEDA has invited 9 representatives from PE companies from 5 European countries. The aim is to introduce them to Armenian companies and set a ground for possible cooperation.

Another important measure supporting the development of the PE sector in Armenia was the launch of the website www.engineering-armenia.am which is a first of its kind platform of information and network for the PE representatives offering a database of 194 PE companies and institutions and many other opportunities for boosting cooperation  between local and international PE companies.

SMEDA will continue its support to the Precision Engineering Sector companies of Armenia offering and facilitating cooperation mechanisms for entering international markets in order to develop a strong and successful PE cluster in Armenia.
