During centuries a unique architectural style has been formed in Gyumri, with more than 1,600 historical-architectural buildings covering an area of about 220 hectares. Most of them were built in the same period - 19th and beginning of 20th centuries. However, during the recent years the city’s historical and cultural heritage has suffered due to the 1988 devastating earthquake and insufficient funding and investments by public and private sectors. This, in its turn, hindered community development and investment flows to the second largest city of Armenia. http://www.am.undp.org/content/armenia/en/home/presscenter/pressreleases/2013/10/07/undp-and-its-partners-join-efforts-to-restore-historical-cultural-heritage-in-gyumri2013-10-07T12:45:18.072Z2013-10-07T12:45:18.072ZModern border management system a key prerequisite for economic growth and poverty firstname.lastname@example.orgBagratashen, 27 September 2013 – “Efficient and effective border management contributes not only to secure borders, but also to the smooth movement of people and goods across borders, and to increased regional and international trade and transit - key prerequisites for economic growth and poverty reduction,” registered the participants of a groundbreaking ceremony that took place at the Bagratashen border crossing point (BCP) within the framework of UNDP implemented “Modernization of Bavra, Bagratashen and Gogavan Border Crossing Points” (MBBG) project.http://www.am.undp.org/content/armenia/en/home/presscenter/pressreleases/2013/09/27/modern-border-management-system-a-key-prerequisite-for-economic-growth-and-poverty-reduction2013-09-28T07:16:59.583Z2013-09-28T07:16:59.583ZMr. Eduardo Eurnekian – UNDP National Goodwill Ambassadornoemail@noemail.orghovhannes.sarajyanYerevan, 13 September 2013 – For his instrumental role in supporting sustainable development in Armenia, for his efforts in the country aimed at reducing poverty, bridging regional disparities, creating jobs and improving the quality of services, today the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Armenia appointed Eduardo Eurnekian, a prominent Argentinean-Armenian businessman and one of the largest investors in Armenia, as its first ever National Goodwill Ambassador. http://www.am.undp.org/content/armenia/en/home/presscenter/pressreleases/2013/09/13/mr-eduardo-eurnekian-undp-national-goodwill-ambassador2013-09-13T11:28:58.173Z2013-09-13T11:28:58.173ZEducation, Health Care, Honest and Responsive Government, and Jobs Top Priorities for People Worldwide, UN Reportnoemail@noemail.orghovhannes.sarajyan10 September 2013, New York - The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon presented today a new report “A Million Voices: The World We Want”.
