Wolfgang Closs, Observatory’s executive director, added “it’s very positive for the Observatory to welcome Armenia as a new member.

Now we look forward to learning more about Armenia’s cinema and television industry and learning how its regulatory structures function.”
The Strasbourg-based European Audiovisual Observatory is part of the Council of Europe and celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
