On 17 April 2013 the newly-opened EU Centre in Yerevan held a reception for ongoing EU-funded projects in Armenia. The event, the third official reception held by the centre was attended by Traian Hristea, the Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia.
Hristea stated that the aim of the event was to present new communications opportunities for EU-funded projects: ‘This is another particularly important project funded by the EU, aimed at bringing together around 90 EU-funded projects in Armenia in a variety of fields such as the environment, infrastructure, social affairs, youth education and people-to-people communication’. He stressed that the concrete actions and results of these cooperative projects would be the key element which would feed and substantiate EU-Armenia relations.
However, according to Hristea, information on projects was still sometimes lacking, or perceived as insufficient: ‘We have established the EU centre to help our projects in their communication activities, and to show the concrete results and benefits for the Armenian people, for Armenian businesses, and the Armenian government’.

The Team Leader of the project, Ehtel Halliste, also presented the centre’s website, which will act as a gateway for EU-Armenia cooperation (www.eucentre.am).

The EU Centre is the main feature of the two-year, EU-funded “Support for EU communications on reforms in Armenia” project. It is a professional communications facility which coordinates the communications activities of EU-funded projects in Armenia and provides quality assurance of published materials.

The project is being implemented by GOPA-Cartermill S.A., in consortium with Altair Asesores and Fainberg LLC.
