"I believe this is yet another major milestone for PMI and project management community in Armenia. PMI Armenia Chapter will no longer be in "potential" status. The chapter will continue delivering its mission. We have already achieved several key progresses and there is yet more to be done with the help of the project management community. Moreover we have seen an exponential increase in number of certified professionals PMP (Project Management Professional). Currently there are 105 PMPs in Armenia and they keep increasing at a rate of 60% annually.

This is really a remarkable achievement for Armenia." statedThomas Mazejian, the president of PMI Armenia Chapter.
