It’s impossible even to enumerate all the programs implemented during these twenty years. They are plenty and diverse, and we just have to put on record that it is inconceivable now to imagine Armenia and Artsakh without the Hayastan Fund. This is a jubilee which inspires us with joy and pride; on the other hand, it’s a reason to work with added enthusiasm and new energy,” President Sargsyan said.
