The respective agreement was signed with Armsanproduct.

Yerevan, 28 December 2018. The Eurasian Development Bank (EDB) and Armsanproduct signed a loan agreement to finance the construction of a 53.4 ha semi-closed greenhouse for year-round tomato cultivation, and a 6.6 ha seedling section.

The EDB provides a US $67 million non-revolving loan facility for ten years.

“The main markets for Armenia’s agricultural produce are the member countries of our bank, Russia in the first place. For this reason, we could not disregard the project with such an integration potential. In addition, agriculture is one of the target sectors determined in the EDB’s strategy until 2022,” Vsevolod Smakov, Manager of Project Block 1 at the EDB, commented.
