Institutional framework reforms

1 March 2012

On 16 December 2011 a discussion involving international donors was held on the Comprehensive Institution Building (CIB) programme in Armenia and the Institutional Reform Plans elaborated within the framework of CIB.
The CIB programme is part of the Eastern Partnership and is implemented in other partner countries as well. In Armenia the programme has 3 components: preparations for negotiations on the Association Agreement, for which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible; justice, freedom and security, implemented by the Ministry of Justice; establishment of a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement, the principal component, for which the Ministry of Economy is responsible.
The Minister of Economy, Tigran Davtyan, said that Armenia would participate in the investment, which could be both direct financing and additional means. He also added that these processes were quite comprehensive and that great effort, time and support would be needed not only from the Armenian side, but also from international organisations.
The EU has allocated €32,000,000 for the programme in Armenia.
‘These institutional reform plans will also serve as a common platform for earmarking national resources as well as the resources of other donors, including the European Union, to support institutional reforms’, said Traian Hristea, the new Head of the EU Delegation.
