On 18 October 2012 Junior Achievement of Armenia and the Mayor's office of Etchmiadzin held a students' trade fair at the vicinity of the City Hall from 01:00-04:00pm
Over 30 student business companies from all regions in Armenia displayed their products for sale.
The trade fair was part of the students' educational experience within the frame of a program called Entrepreneurship and Civic Activism for Young People, financed by the United States Agency for International Development.
Throughout the academic year, the students have learned the basics of organizing a business company including hiring their management personnel, conducting a marketing survey, writing a business plan, etc.
The trade fair is the culmination of their educational process wherein they offer their products to the consumer.
The student companies will donate part of the proceeds of the sales to a charitable cause of their choice.
