EU projects in Armenia available online

28 October 2019

The whole spectrum of the EU-Armenia partnership and cooperation, including EU-supported projects implemented in various sectors and beneficiary stories, are now available online. The EU4Armenia.am platform was officially launched on 10 October. The Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Andrea Wiktorin, and the RA Minister of High-Tech Industry Hakob Arshakyan, were present at the launch alongside the guests from the Government and National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia, diplomatic missions, international and civil society organisations, beneficiaries of the EU-funded projects, partners, media representatives and other stakeholders.

Ambassador Wiktorin highlighted the huge work done to make the platform a reality: “I am impressed that we can launch this important platform today. We want to show what we do together. EU for Armenia means EU and Armenia. This is the best way to present what we do together and what we do for the benefit of Armenia’s citizens. This e-platform can be considered as an online dictionary; it has been launched to raise the awareness of Armenia’s citizens about EU activities in the country, as well as to make this process more transparent”.

In his speech Minister Arshakyan noted that accountability and transparency were priorities for the Armenian Government: “This newly created platform is a great opportunity to show what programmes are being implemented, what progress they have made, and their efficiency. We want to emphasise transparency of the implementation of the programmes, along with the development of technologies that can make our cooperation more effective”.

The EU4Armenia.am is an electronic map which showcases EU-Armenia cooperation and EU-funded multisectorial projects implemented in different regions and communities of Armenia. EU-Armenia relations began as early as 1999, based on the EU-Armenia Partnership and Cooperation Agreement. To enhance the volume and depth of cooperation, the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA) was signed in November 2017. The content of the website will be updated regularly.
