Armenia today has the economy which is growing and developing. Area disagreement holds up economic growth. In addition, Armenia has no access to sea ports difficult because the border with Turkey is closed. In 2010, it was confirmed that Turkey will keep the border closed for the predictable future …after the Turkey-Armenia normalization progression collapsed. However, Armenia turned out to be a member of the WTO (World Trade Organization). The nation is making substantial progress in privatizing possession of what used to be State Owned industries under the former Soviet system. Armenia's economy suffered especially after the great impact that the 1988 earthquake brought. Armenia today is still largely dependent upon international donors and Diaspora Armenian groups, which donating aid is used for the development of the affected regions. It should be also added that after a massive 14.4 % decline in 2009, the economy appeared to modestly improving in the first 2 quarters of 2010, recording 5.4 and 7.6% real GDP growth on an annual basis. The GDP went up by 2.8 % in the period January to September 2010 compared to the same period in 2009; on the face of it, seems to point out that the worst of the crisis may finish. Armenia today has exports remained resource-dependent, mainly because the non-resource-intensive sectors were considerably less aggressive. There was a 43.9 % increase in general exports during the January to September period. During 2003-2007, the AMD valued sharply against the U.S. dollar by around 45%, mainly due to important increase in discharges, growth of exports in complete terms, the de-dollarization of the economy, and weakening of the dollar in international markets. Today Armenia is greatly dependent on import of energy fuel, generally from Russia. The Armenia Nuclear Power Plant (ANPP) at Metsamor supplies around 40% of electricity production for the nation, and hydro and thermal stations provide approximately 30% each. Armenia today imports most of its natural gas from Russia, which provided major reductions to Armenia until 2009. The Russian import gas price rose from $110 to $154 per thousand cubic meters in April 2009, and increased further to $180 in April 2010. Today Georgia is the main way of importing nearly all of Armenian refined petroleum products. The result of the recent conflict between Russia and Georgia was in periodic disruptions of fuel and food imports, and highlighted Armenia's susceptibility to this solitary transit corridor. Armenia has deal with to decrease poverty, overcome inflation, steady its currency, and privatize most small and medium sized projects. www.Arm3A.org - Production and Export Support Association (MORE)

The native Armenian name for the country is Hayk'. The name in the Middle Ages was extended to Hayastan, by addition of the Iranian suffix -stan (land). The name has traditionally been derived from Hayk (ÕÕ¡ÕµÕ¯), the legendary patriarch of the Armenians and a great-great-grandson of Noah, …who according to Moses of Chorene defeated the Babylonian king Bel in 2492 BC, and established his nation in the Ararat region. The further origin of the name is uncertain. The exonym Armenia is attested in the Old Persian Behistun inscription (515 BC) as Armina ( ). Ancient Greek ÎÏÎ¼ÎÎ½Î¹Î¿Î¹ "Armenians" is mentioned by Hecataeus of Miletus (476 BC). Xenophon, a Greek general serving in some of the Persian expeditions, describes many aspects of Armenian village life and hospitality. He relates that the people spoke a language that to his ear sounded like the language of the Persians. According to the histories of both Moses of Chorene and Michael Chamich, Armenia derives from the name of Aram, a lineal descendent of Hayk. (MORE)

Armenia is located on the continent of Asia, is referred to in several instances in the bible as the near east (NOT middle east!) and her most famous Mt. Ararat is also mentioned several times as her ancient name of Urartu. Armenia is half way between Asia and Europe and Armenians are referred to as… Indo-Europeans, as is the Armenian language. Sometimes they are referred to as Eurasian as well. Armenia joined the EU in the mid 1990's and are part of the United Nations. Ancient Armenia's borders were the caspian sea, the black sea and the mediterranean sea. Ottoman Turks reduced Armenia's borders as a result of the Armenian Genocide to less than 20% of her original borders, and Turkey enclosed our beloved Mt Ararat within it's borders. Many of Armenia's ancient churches were destroyed by the muslim turks and to defy Russia, they placed a large portion of muslims to the east of armenia and gave them this land as Azerbaijan in 1920, encouraging them to destroy what was left of any remnants of Armenia, rename the cities and create new history on our ancient land.
