President Vahagn Khachaturyan, who is on a working visit to the US state of California, visited the Synopsys Company in Silicon Valley.

At the meeting with the President and CEO of the Company, Sassine Ghazi, the President of the Republic highly appreciated the almost two decades of vigorous activity of Synopsys in the field of high technologies, education, social and other spheres and effective cooperation with the Armenian side.

In his speech, the President of the Republic noted: “Synopsys has provided us with very important assistance, bringing an innovative spirit, a new working style and modern principles of operation.

I want to emphasize one important fact: all Synopsys initiatives and programs have an institutional and systemic basis, and it is for this reason as well that the Company shows a special approach to education, investing heavily in this sphere.

We hope your example will be contagious to others in the field as well. Let’s also hope that as a result of our joint efforts, our educational system will be able to meet the existing demand in this sphere, and mutually, using the example of Synopsys, our educational system will also undergo changes for the better.

I would also like to express my gratitude for the social and humanitarian activities carried out by Synopsys, and in this regard, I want to thank Synopsys and all those organizations that have extended a helping hand and contributed to the humanitarian support of our compatriots forcibly displaced from Nagorno-Karabakh.”

President of the Company Sassine Ghazi, thanking for the kind words and appreciation, noted that he highly and effectively appreciates the stable and developing cooperation established between Synopsys and the Republic of Armenia not only in the field of information technology, but also in education, science and other related fields.

Sassine Ghazi noted that Synopsys Armenia occupies a unique and leading position in the large family of the Company, which is a significant result of close bilateral cooperation.

During the meeting, the sides touched upon achievements in the field of high technology, education and related fields, current and future programs, as well as directions for further expansion of cooperation.

The sides noted the importance of theoretical and practical cooperation between representatives of the IT sector and Armenian educational institutions, as well as the expansion of joint programs aimed at training specialists.

During the conversation, the sides exchanged views on the democratic reforms carried out in Armenia in recent years and their results. In this context, President Vahagn Khachaturyan noted that the steps aimed at establishing democratic institutions, economic reforms and measures had a direct positive impact on creating a more favorable environment for business and promoting investments.

The President also added that such positive developments, as well as the steps taken by the Armenian government aimed at developing the high-tech sector, are an additional opportunity and create favorable conditions for activating sectoral investments.

At the end of the meeting, President Vahagn Khachaturyan extended an invitation to Sassine Ghazi to visit Armenia, if possible, for which a series of events planned for the current year dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the foundation of Synopsys Armenia may also be a good opportunity.
