On January 18-19, 2022 FOICA and Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) organized “Empowering the Private Sector to Combat Disinformation” online training sessions for 28 representatives of 23 private companies.

In the welcoming speech FOICA Director Shushan Doydoyan mentioned that the training is not only an opportunity to gain new knowledge and skills, but also to communicate directly with specialists in the field.

An IT and media expert Artur Papyan mentioned. "It is important to be a media literate, but remember that the tool learned today may change tomorrow, so the knowledge gained in this field needs to be regularly updated".

A special part of session was dedicated to regulations of beneficial ownership transparency.

The new regulations of the company’s beneficial ownership declaration provide new obligations for the private sector, the violation of which may lead to administrative and criminal liability. Thus, the training was aimed at answering possible questions related to this problem and raising awareness about this field.  Beneficial ownership (BO) expert Ani Varderesyan answered the questions related to the topic.

During the sessions the communication expert Nvard Melkonyan presented the business representatives the features of combating disinformation in the context of public relations, as well as cooperation between entrepreneurial companies and advertisers.
