Armenia covers an area of 29,800 square kms - about the size of Belgium - and lies in the south-western part of Transcaucasia
an area of land between the Black and Caspian Seas. It has a population of 3.5 million with an estimated 5 million Armenians
living outside the country, especially in the United States and France. 1.2m live in the capital city Yerevan. Armenia's dispute
with its neighbour Azerbaijan, over Nagorno Karabakh, has continuing implications for trade.
Although Armenia's borders with Azerbaijan and Turkey remain closed, goods are easily transported into the country through
Georgia or Iran which is illustrated by the amount of Turkish and foreign goods for sale in the market.
Armenian Orthodox (94%)
