“Festival of intellectual games is an excellent way of celebrating the 20th anniversary of our bank. “Unibank” pays special attention to supporting educational projects, and is a long-term sponsor of the game “What? Where?When?” in Armenia. After all, the intellectual games contribute to the popularisation of the concept of overall personality development, the formation of quick and original thinking, the improvement of team interaction skills and the broadening of horizons,” says Mesrop Hakobyan, CEO of Unibank.
“One of the objectives of the intellectual games’ festival is to popularise our country in the world. It’s essential to convey to as many people as possible that Armenia, although small in territory, has a significant intellectual potential. Intellect, indeed, is our main national brand”, notes Tigran Kocharyan, Chairman of the Armenian Association of Intellectuals.
