On 6 October 2014, the EU Advisory Group (EUAG) organised a working discussion on the draft Anti-Corruption Strategy and Action Plan. The meeting was aimed at presenting comments and recommendations on the draft and to discuss mechanisms for implementation.

The draft strategy defines the institutional setting of the fight against corruption and outlines the strategic directions of work in the following areas: building and upholding integrity in the public service; promoting transparency and openness; ensuring greater civic participation in decision-making processes; installing strong systems of criminal, administrative and disciplinary liabilities in cases of misconduct; improving the investigation and prosecution of corruption-related crimes.
The meeting was attended by representatives of the state bodies responsible for the development of the strategy, representatives of NGOs and civil society, and international organisations.

The draft strategy also focuses on four additional sectors nominated by the Armenian government as critical: healthcare, education, the police, and state revenue. The working discussion covered compliance of the new Anti- Corruption Strategy with international and EU best practices, and attempted to build upon lessons learned from the implementation of the previous strategy.
