Again, the data are commendable, but you should put the statistics in context by explaining the trends and the numbers; in other words, you should answer the question why. Also, in the case of Argenitina, could Mister Eduardo Ernekian help explain his country's outsized contribution?

How many wineny operations (Tierras de Armenia), airports (ie Zvartnots) and banks (ie Converse) has Argentina's Eurnekian invested in across Armenia? Why is it such a surprise if his FDI continued in 2013? He is sort of a billionaire is USD terms, isn't he? It is not that farfetched given the paltry levels of FDI Armenia receives relative to Georgia.
