Shtigen Group representatives and Chinese delegates toured the school and got acquainted with the best educational example, the proof of the Armenian-Chinese friendship. Shtigen does not rule out that further cooperation with the school is possible based on this case study. In addition, since Armenia is a country with automobile manufacturing traditions, we also took our Chinese partners to the "Engineering City", where they got acquainted with the Armenian “Dream” Car Model, explained the Head of  the Shtigen Group Public Relations, adding that it was not at all by chance that one of the slogans of the Andron company read “Charge your DREAMS”.

Shtigen has created those foundations to the best of its ability, and the Chinese partners got to know quite vividly what we actually do in that regard," Arpi Harutyunyan summarized the visit.
