The “iGorts” program is being implemented for the 4th time. It is the first programme in the history of the Republic of Armenia to engage Armenian specialists from the Diaspora to work for the Armenian government and other agencies at the state level. One hundred fifty specialists from Diaspora have already been employed in Armenian and Artsakh governmental agencies within the framework of this program. After completing the program, more than 60% of our participants have permanently established themselves in Armenia, and some work in senior positions.
