The prestigious British magazine The Economist has chosen Armenia as the Country of The Year 2018.
In its latest edition (December 18, 2018) the news analysis magazine chooses 3 countries with substantial improvements during 2018: Malaysia, Ethiopia and Armenia.

The magazine ends its commentary with: “…an ancient and often misruled nation in a turbulent region has a chance of democracy and renewal. For that reason, Armenia is our country of the year. Shnorhavorum yem!”
