In June 2019 President Sarkissian visited the pavilion of the Thales Group at the Air show in Bourget and met with the President of the company Patrice Caine. The agreement was reached to organize a visit of the company representatives to Armenia and create working groups to examine the already existing document on cooperation in concrete areas. Cooperation in the area of artificial intelligence, management of digital data and implementation of joint programs in a number of other areas were viewed as especially promising.

In the framework of their visit to Armenia, the representatives of the Thales Group will hold meetings with the Minister of High technology industry Hakop Arshakian, Minister of Science, Education, Culture, and Sports Arayik Harutyunian, visit leading technological companies, particularly Synopsis Armenia, TUMO creative technological center, meet with representatives of Armenian startup companies, examine Armenia’s experience in the area of high technologies and their accomplishments.
