No Longer Just a Resort Town Popular with Tourists, Dilijan is Transforming into a Modern Financial Center 


Surrounded by lush evergreen forests, Dilijan is proving to be more than a resort town in the Tavush Province known for its natural beauty. The newly-built modern campus of UWC Dilijan combines a center for academic excellence with a philosophy that aims to unite people and cultures from all over the world to work for peace and a sustainable future. The international co-educational boarding school will play an integral role in helping transform the small resort town of 15,000 into a major financial hub, where the government has already moved a part of the Central Bank of Armenia and developed new infrastructure to accommodate new investors. The school also plans to work with public and private organizations to develop the area in a harmonious and sustainable manner.
