The European market is open for Armenian producers

16 September 2010

On 1-2 July an information workshop aimed at promoting the access of Armenian products to the European market took place in Yerevan and Ijevan. Armenian businesses were informed about ways to export to the EU. They were given in-depth briefing on the “GSP+” Generalized System of Preferences that Armenia benefits from. Through GSP+, EU Member States offer developing countries an advantageous access to the EU market (0% or nearly 0% import tariffs). To facilitate the information flow, the EU has prepared an information tool, “The Export Helpdesk” website (http://exporthelp.europa.eu), which is free and allows potential exporters to find details on how to get access to the European market. The seminar’s goal was to assist Armenian producers in organising the export of their products properly. “It is really very important for Armenian producers to meet the EU standards for regulation. Only in that case their products can be competitive in Europe”, noted Maryse Coutsouradis, the Policy Coordinator for the Export Helpdesk in the European Commission.
