Welcome to the website of the European Union Delegation to Armenia. We hope the information it contains will help you to better understand the activities of the European Union and the role of the Delegation in Armenia in particular. You can also explore here the projects that we implement and see in which sectors the European Union is engaged in Armenia.
I started my mission in Armenia in September 2015. I have joined the Delegation team with a strong desire to facilitate the further deepening and strengthening of EU-Armenia relations.
Armenia is an important partner of the European Union. It forms part of the European Union Neighbourhood. In March 2015, the European Union launched joint consultations towards a new European Neighbourhood Policy. The aim is to overhaul thoroughly and revise the Policy for each neighbourhood country so that we have a tailor-made approach. This new framework will offer improved opportunities for enhancing the EU-Armenia cooperation.
In May 2015, the Eastern Partnership Summit took place in Riga; it demonstrated that the European Union continues to engage with all six of our independent and sovereign partners, whatever their individual level of ambition in terms of relations with the European Union.
The start of my work in the Delegation is very well timed. We expect negotiations with Armenia over a new overarching legal framework for bilateral relations to be launched soon. And I am delighted to witness and to be part of this process.
And now, let me wish you interesting reading and thank you again for your interest in the European Union.
