Negotiations on Association Agreement with the EU launched The first round of negotiations on an Association Agreement between the EU and Armenia started on 19 July in Yerevan. The main objective of the Association Agreement is to achieve closer political and economic association between the EU and Armenia. “This is ambitious and ambition needs time to get things right. We want to get a good agreement with lasting effects for all citizens,” said Gunnar Wiegand, the head of the EU negotiating team, in reply to questions regarding the timeline for completing

negotiations. The agreement will foster economic integration to provide standardization and free access to the respective markets. According to Wiegand it “will give Armenia an opportunity to become an attractive field both for domestic and foreign investors”. He also noted the EU is expecting a mandate from its Member States on visa facilitation and visa readmission agreements, in order to get Armenia ever closer to the EU.

The Association Agreement negotiations will take place in the form of full sessions and working groups. They will cover a wide range of areas, including political dialogue, justice, freedom and security, as well as trade and cooperation in sectoral policy. The coordinator of the Armenian negotiating team is Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandyan. The second round will take place in Brussels in October. Negotiations on Association Agreement were also launched in Georgia and Azerbaijan in the preceding days.

EU diplomatic service: EEAS On 26 July the Council of the European Union adopted a decision on establishing the European External Action Service (EEAS) and set out its organisation and functioning. The creation of the EEAS became one of the most significant changes introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon, which entered into force on 1 December 2009. It is aimed at making the EU’s external action more coherent and efficient, thereby increasing the EU’s influence in the world. The EEAS will assist the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton in fulfilling her mandate. It will work in cooperation with the diplomatic services of the member states and comprise officials from relevant departments of the General Secretariat of the Council and of the Commission, as well as the staff seconded from the national diplomatic services of the member states. Throughout the first half of 2010, Ashton sought agreement between the Council, the Parliament and the Commission as to the future shape of the EEAS. The Commission wanted to retain many of its existing competencies, while the Parliament wanted oversight over the EEAS through scrutiny over appointments and budgets. The High Representative submitted her proposal on the structure of the EEAS and a political agreement was reached in April at the General Affairs Council. The proposal was adopted by the European Parliament by a large majority on 8 July. “We can now move forward to build a modern, effective and distinctly European service for the 21st century” shared Ashton. Formally the EEAS will come into being by the first anniversary of the Lisbon Treaty.

Events/Æñ³¹³ñÓáõÃÛáõÝÝ»ñ Natural disasters and protection against them. A Disaster Risk Reduction DIPECHO regional project, with a goal to raise the level of preparedness in disaster-prone regions was launched in Armenia on 8 July. “The South Caucasus is highly exposed to natural hazards” said Onno Simons, the head of the Political, Economic, Press and Information section of the EU Delegation to Armenia, stressing that Armenia is particularly prone to natural disasters. From 2003 to 2007 718 natural disasters were registered on the territory of Armenia, causing the destruction of settlements and cultivated land. With an overall aim to help people prepare and cope better with disasters, the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Department has assigned € 2 million for the implementation of DIPECHO projects in Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan. In Armenia the implementation of the programme already started in the regions of Vayots Dzor and Tavush: schools have been equipped with means of fire-prevention and first aid, teachers and pupils have been trained how to act in extraordinary situations and evacuation studies have been conducted. Information booklets have also been disseminated. In Armenia, the disaster preparedness programme is implemented by the Armenian Red Cross Society, OXFAM GB Armenian branch and UNICEF Armenia. ´Ý³Ï³Ý ³Õ»ïÝ»ñ áõ å³ßïå³ÝáõÃáõÝ ¹ñ³ÝóÇó г۳ëï³ÝáõÙ ÑáõÉÇëÇ 8-ÇÝ Ù»ÏݳñÏ»É ¿ ºíñ³Ñ³ÝÓݳÅáÕáíÇ Ù³ñ¹³ëÇñ³Ï³Ý û·ÝáõÃÛ³Ý µ³ÅÝÇ ²Õ»ïÝ»ñÇ éÇëÏ»ñÇ Ýí³½»óÙ³Ý ï³ñ³Í³ßñç³Ý³ÏÇÝ Íñ³·ÇñÁ (DIPECHO), áñÇ Ýå³ï³ÏÝ ¿ µ³ñÓñ³óÝ»É ³Õ»ïÝ»ñÇÝ ¹ÇٳϳۻÉáõ å³ïñ³ëïí³ÍáõÃÛ³Ý Ù³Ï³ñ¹³ÏÁ: §Ð³ñ³í³ÛÇÝ ÎáíϳëáõÙ µÝ³Ï³Ý ³Õ»ïÝ»ñÇ Ù»Í Ñ³Ïí³ÍáõÃÛáõÝ Ï³¦, - ³ë»É ¿ г۳ëï³ÝáõÙ ºíñ³ÙÇáõÃÛ³Ý å³ïíÇñ³ÏáõÃÛ³Ý ù³Õ³ù³Ï³Ý, ïÝï»ë³Ï³Ý, Ù³ÙáõÉÇ ¨ ï»Õ»Ï³ïíáõÃÛ³Ý µ³ÅÝÇ Õ»Ï³í³ñ úÝÝá êÇÙáÝëÁ` ß»ßï»Éáí ѳïϳå»ë г۳ëï³ÝÇ Ñ³Ïí³ÍáõÃÛáõÝÁ µÝ³Ï³Ý ³Õ»ïÝ»ñÇÝ: 2003-2007 Ã.Ã.

Armenian Public Financial Management reforms The second round of reforms of the management of the Armenian Public Finance system was discussed in Yerevan on 16 June. The objective of reforms envisaged during the next ten years, is to enhance the efficiency of managing public expenses. “We support reforms which will not only modernize the public financial system, but, controlling the expenses, will also restrain corruption”, said Raul de Luzenberger, the Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia. Within the scope of the workshop, participants also discussed the international experience on the PFM system reforms and best practices, including the Public Internal Financial Control (PIFC). PIFC focuses on harmonising the public sector’s internal control system with international standards. This model could be introduced as a new mechanism in the Armenian PIFC system. Among the participants of the workshop were Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan, Minister of Finance Tigran Davtyan and Asad Alam, the Country Director of the South Caucasus Countries Department at the World Bank. гÛÏ³Ï³Ý å»ï³Ï³Ý ýÇݳÝë³Ï³Ý ϳé³í³ñÙ³Ý µ³ñ»÷áË��õÙÝ»ñ ä»ï³Ï³Ý ýÇݳÝë³Ï³Ý ϳé³í³ñÙ³Ý(äüÎ) ѳٳϳñ·Ç µ³ñ»÷áËáõÙÝ»ñÇ í»ñ³µ»ñÛ³É »ñÏñáñ¹ ÷áõÉÇ ùÝݳñÏáõÙÝ»ñÁ ï»ÕÇ »Ý áõÝ»ó»É ÑáõÝÇëÇ 16-ÇÝ ºñ¨³ÝáõÙ: ´³ñ»÷áËáõÙÝ»ñÇ Ýå³ï³ÏÁ ѳçáñ¹ ï³ëÁ ï³ñí³ ÁÝóóùáõÙ å»ï³Ï³Ý ͳËë»ñÇ Ï³é³í³ñÙ³Ý ³ñ¹Ûáõݳí»ïáõÃÛ³Ý µ³ñÓñ³óáõÙÝ ¿: §Ø»Ýù å³ßïå³ÝáõÙ »Ýù ³ÛÝ µ³ñ»÷áËáõÙÝ»ñÁ, áñáÝù, í»ñ³ÑëÏ»Éáí ͳËë»ñÁ, áã ÙdzÛÝ Ï³ñ¹Ç³Ï³Ý³óÝ»Ý å»ï³Ï³Ý ýÇݳÝë³Ï³Ý ѳٳϳñ·Á, ³Ûɨ ÏÝí³½»óÝ»Ý Ï³ß³é³Ï»ñáõÃÛáõÝÁ¦, - ³ë»É ¿ г۳ëï³ÝáõÙ ºØ å³ïíÇñ³ÏáõÃÛ³Ý Õ»Ï³í³ñ è³áõÉ ¹» Èáõó»Ýµ»ñ·»ñÁ: ²ß˳ï³Ýù³ÛÇÝ ë»ÙÇݳñÇ ßñç³Ý³ÏÝ»ñáõÙ Ù³ëݳÏÇóÝ»ñÝ ³Ý¹ñ³¹³ñÓ»É »Ý ݳ¨ äüΠѳٳϳñ·Ç µ³ñ»÷áËáõÙÝ»ñÇ Çñ³Ï³Ý³óÙ³Ý ÙÇç³½·³ÛÇÝ ÷áñÓÇÝ ¨ É³í³·áõÛÝ ûñÇݳÏÝ»ñÇÝ, ³Û¹ ÃíáõÙ` å»ï³Ï³Ý Ý»ñùÇÝ ýÇݳÝë³Ï³Ý ÑëÏáÕáõÃÛ³ÝÁ (äÜüÐ): äÜüÐ-Ý áõÕÕí³Í ¿ å»ï³Ï³Ý ѳïí³ÍÇ Ý»ñùÇÝ í»ñ³ÑëÏáÕáõÃÛ³Ý Ñ³Ù³Ï³ñ·Á ÙÇç³½·³ÛÇÝ ã³÷áñáßÇãÝ»ñÇÝ Ñ³Ù³å³ï³ë˳ݻóÝ»ÉáõÝ: ²Ûë Ùá¹»ÉÁ ϳñáÕ ¿ ¹Çï³ñÏí»É áñå»ë Ýáñ ٻ˳ÝǽÙ` г۳ëï³ÝÇ äÜüРѳٳϳñ·áõÙ ÏÇñ³é»Éáõ ѳٳñ: ê»ÙÇݳñÇÝ Ù³ëݳÏó»É »Ý ÐÐ í³ñã³å»ï îÇ·ñ³Ý ê³ñ·ëÛ³ÝÁ, ÐÐ ýÇݳÝëÝ»ñÇ Ý³Ë³ñ³ñ îÇ·ñ³Ý ¸³íÃÛ³ÝÁ ¨ гٳß˳ñѳÛÇÝ µ³ÝÏÇ Ð³ñ³í³ÛÇÝ ÎáíϳëÇ ï³ñ³Í³ßñç³Ý³ÛÇÝ ïÝûñ»Ý ²ë³¹ ²É³ÙÁ: EU Advisory Group Board meeting On 11 June the EU Advisory Group presented its progress report during the 4th EU Advisory Group Board Meeting. After its first year of activities, the group’s contribution to the Armenian reform agenda was positively assessed by the members of the Advisory Board. “The experiment of the EU Advisory Group is a success, and Armenian experience will be used in the work with other countries of the Eastern Partnership. I suppose we mustn’t hide the difficulties, which we collided with, and there is still work to be done,” said the Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia Raul de Luzenberger. The Secretary of the National Security Council Artur Baghdasaryan mentioned as positive achievements the establishment of the Diplomatic Academy, as well as reforms in the field of trade. He expressed hope that the latter would lead to establishing a free trade agreement with the EU, thus allowing Armenian businessmen to export their products to the EU markets without any obstacles. ºØ ÊáñÑñ¹³ïí³Ï³Ý ËÙµÇ Ñ³ßí»ïáõ ÝÇëïÁ ºØ ËáñÑñ¹³ïí³Ï³Ý ËáõÙµÝ (ÊÊ) Çñ ³ß˳ï³Ýù³ÛÇÝ Ñ³ßí»ïíáõÃÛáõÝÁ Ý»ñϳ۳óñ»É ¿ ÑáõÝÇëÇ 11-ÇÝ ãáññáñ¹ ÝÇëïÇ ÁÝóóùáõÙ: ÊáñÑñ¹³ïí³Ï³Ý ËÙµÇ ³Ý¹³ÙÝ»ñÁ ¹ñ³Ï³Ý »Ý ·Ý³Ñ³ï»É Çñ»Ýó ٻϳÙÛ³ ·áñÍáõÝ»áõÃÛáõÝÁ г۳ëï³ÝÇ µ³ñ»÷áËáõÙÝ»ñÇ áÉáñïáõÙ: §ºØ ËáñÑñ¹³ïí³Ï³Ý ËÙµÇ ÷áñÓÁ ѳçáÕí³Í ¿, ¨ ѳ۳ëï³ÝÛ³Ý ÷áñÓÁ ÏÏÇñ³éíÇ ²ñ¨»ÉÛ³Ý Ñ³Ù³·áñͳÏóáõÃÛ³Ý ³ÛÉ »ñÏñÝ»ñáõÙ ÝáõÛÝå»ë: γñÍáõÙ »Ù, áñ å»ïù 㿠óùóÝ»É Ý³¨ ³ÛÝ ¹Åí³ñáõÃÛáõÝÝ»ñÁ, áñáÝó µ³Ëí»É »Ýù, ¨ ¹»é áñáß³ÏÇ ³ß˳ï³Ýù ϳ ³Ý»Éáõ¦, - ³ë»É ¿ г۳ëï³ÝáõÙ ºíñ³ÙÇáõÃÛ³Ý å³ïíÇñ³ÏáõÃÛ³Ý Õ»Ï³í³ñ, ¹»ëå³Ý è³áõÉ ¹» Èáõó»Ýµ»ñ·»ñÁ: àñå»ë Ó»éùµ»ñáõÙ` г۳ëï³ÝÇ ³½·³ÛÇÝ ³Ýíï³Ý·áõÃÛ³Ý ËáñÑñ¹Ç ù³ñïáõÕ³ñ ²ñÃáõñ ´³Õ¹³ë³ñÛ³ÝÁ Ýᯐ ¿ ¸Çí³Ý³·Çï³Ï³Ý ³Ï³¹»ÙdzÛÇ ÑÇÙÝáõÙÁ, ÇÝãå»ë ݳ¨ Éáõñç µ³ñ»÷áËáõÙÝ»ñÝ ³½³ï ³é¨ïñÇ áÉáñïáõÙ: ܳ ÑáõÛë ¿ ѳÛïÝ»É, áñ í»ñçÇÝë ÏÝå³ëïÇ ºíñ³ÙÇáõÃÛ³Ý Ñ»ï ³½³ï ³é¨ïñÇ Ñ³Ù³Ó³Ûݳ·ñÇ Ñ³ëï³ïÙ³ÝÁ, áñå»ë½Ç г۳ëï³ÝÇ ·áñͳñ³ñÝ»ñÁ Ñݳñ³íáñáõÃÛáõÝ áõÝ»Ý³Ý Çñ»Ýó ³ñï³¹ñ³ÝùÝ ³Ý³ñ·»É ³ñï³Ñ³Ý»É »íñáå³Ï³Ý ßáõϳ: The European market is open for Armenian producers 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. ºíñáå³Ï³Ý ßáõÏ³Ý µ³ó ¿ Ñ³Û ³ñï³¹ñáÕÝ»ñÇ Ñ³Ù³ñ Ð³Û ·áñͳñ³ñÝ»ñÇ ³ñï³¹ñ³ÝùÁ »íñáå³Ï³Ý ßáõϳ ³ñï³Ñ³Ý»ÉáõÝ Ýå³ëï»Éáõ Ýå³ï³Ïáí ÑáõÉÇëÇ 1-2-Á ºñ¨³ÝáõÙ ¨ Æ稳ÝáõÙ ³Ýó ¿ Ï³óí»É ï»Õ»Ï³ïí³Ï³Ý ³ß˳ï³ÅáÕáí: Ð³Û ³ñï³¹ñáÕÝ»ñÇÝ Ý»ñϳ۳óí»É »Ý ºØ ³ñï³Ñ³ÝÙ³Ý áõÕÇÝ»ñÁ: ֻ峽ñáõÛóÇ Å³Ù³Ý³Ï Ýñ³Ýù ͳÝáóó»É »Ý §²ÀÐ+¦ ³ñïáÝáõÃÛáõÝÝ»ñÇ ÁݹѳÝñ³óí³Í ѳٳϳñ·ÇÝ, áñÇó û·ïíáõÙ ¿ г۳ëï³ÝÁ: §²ÀÐ+¦-Ç ÙÇçáóáí ºØ ³Ý¹³Ù-å»ïáõÃÛáõÝÝ»ñÁ ºØ ßáõϳ ÙáõïùÇ ½ñáÛ³Ï³Ý Ï³Ù ·ñ»Ã» ½ñáÛ³Ï³Ý Ù³ùë³ïáõñù»ñáí ³ñïáÝÛ³É å³ÛÙ³ÝÝ»ñ »Ý ³é³ç³ñÏáõÙ ½³ñ·³óáÕ »ñÏñÝ»ñÇÝ: î»Õ»Ï³ïí³Ï³Ý ÑáëùÁ Ñ»ßï³óÝ»Éáõ Ýå³ï³Ïáí ºØ-Ý Ùß³Ï»É ¨ ëï»ÕÍ»É ¿ ݳ¨ ï»Õ»Ï³ïí³Ï³Ý ÙÇ ·áñÍÇù ¨ë` §²ñï³Ñ³ÝÙ³Ý ï»Õ»Ï³ïáõ¦ ϳÛùÁ (ï»ë` http://exporthelp.europa.eu), áñÁ ·áñÍáõÙ ¿ ³Ýí׳ñ ¨ ³ñï³Ñ³ÝáÕÝ»ñÇÝ ïñ³Ù³¹ñáõÙ ¿ »íñáå³Ï³Ý ßáõϳ Ùáõïù ·áñÍ»Éáõ í»ñ³µ»ñÛ³É ³ÙµáÕç³Ï³Ý ï»Õ»Ï³ïíáõÃÛáõÝ: ²ß˳ï³ÅáÕáíÇ Ýå³ï³ÏÝ ¿ñ ³ç³Ïó»É Ñ³Û ³ñï³¹ñáÕÝ»ñÇÝ` ×Çßï ¨ ·ñ³·»ï ϳ½Ù³Ï»ñå»Éáõ Çñ»Ýó ³ñï³¹ñ³ÝùÇ ³ñï³Ñ³ÝáõÙÁ: §Þ³ï ϳñ¨áñ ¿, áñå»ë½Ç Ñ³Û ³ñï³¹ñáÕÁ ѳٳå³ï³ë˳ݻóÝÇ Çñ ³ñï³¹ñ³ÝùÇ áñ³ÏÁ »íñáå³Ï³Ý ßáõϳÛÇ ã³÷³ÝÇß»ñÇÝ: ØdzÛÝ ³Û¹ ¹»åùáõÙ Ýñ³ ³é³ç³ñÏ³Í ³åñ³Ýù³ï»ë³ÏÁ ÙñóáõÝ³Ï ÏÉÇÝÇ ºíñáå³ÛáõÙ¦, - Ýᯐ ¿ ºíñáå³Ï³Ý ѳÝÓݳÅáÕáíÇ ²ñï³Ñ³ÝÙ³Ý ï»Õ»Ï³ïáõÇ ù³Õ³ù³Ï³ÝáõÃÛ³Ý Ñ³Ù³Ï³ñ·áÕ Ø³ñǽ øáõ¹ëáõñ³¹Ç½Á: 2

Delegation of the European Union to Armenia

Empowering young women in rural areas For a society to develop and progress, women’s role needs to be respected within. Even though Armenian legislation refers to women’s rights, legal aspects and daily habits often clash. Today many women remain uninformed about their rights and find their activities constrained, particularly in the regions and rural communities. In order to promote women’s role in society, the Civil Society Development Center NGO initiated a programme for “Empowering young women in rural areas” with the support of the EU. Its long-term objective is to assist democratic development through civil education, and help women become proactive citizens. The programme was launched in 2009 and will last until March 2012. Participants are girls and young women aged between 17 and 25 from mainly vulnerable families in 31 Armenian cities and rural communities. The programme is particularly important for these communities, because it is there that women’s unemployment reaches a peak. The regions have the lowest level of business controlled by women-entrepreneurs and women in general do not participate in the socio-economical development of the community sufficiently. To involve as many participants as possible, CSDC organised initial visits to all cities and the country side and acquainted the target group with the concept of the programme. Activities have so far included seminars on human rights, gender equality, leadership as well as workshops on funding and leading teams. Trainings of trainers, sessions in Yerevan, and publishing training materials and books were also organised in the scope of the programme. The seminars have helped young women discover their abilities and aspire to be active participants in civil society and get involved in public development. The workshops allowed women “express their own thoughts and opinions freely and easily, an essential factor in selfassertion,” stressed Oksanna Veziryan and Susanna Hakobyan from the “Yerkyak” Youth NGO. Results until now have also inspired ideas for future cooperation among young women. “As a continuation of the programme, establishing schools for women leadership in the regions of Armenia would be appreciated” suggested Aida Atabekyan from Dilijan. Others suggested organising future training focusing on women’s rights protection.

Healthcare and Rehabilitation Centre in Vayots Dzor

²éáÕçáõÃÛ³Ý å³Ñå³ÝÙ³Ý »õ í»ñ³Ï³Ý·ÝáÕ³Ï³Ý Ï»ÝïñáÝ ì³Ûáó ÓáñáõÙ A Healthcare and Rehabilitation Centre financed by the EU will start functioning in Vayots Dzor on 16 September 2010. The centre was created to target one of the core aspects of the EU Poverty Reduction Strategy - improving health protection. The project was funded with € 330 000. Launched in 2009, the programme involved the construction of the building, which is now almost completed and will be operational in September. Within the scope of the programme, the Centre will welcome 950 people per year. Arshavir Bayatyan, the president of “Vayots Dzor NGOs Association” implementing the project, shared the objectives and the goals of the Centre: - Why was this project designed for the Vayots Dzor community in particular? - Everyone knows the differences between Yerevan, the capital, and the regions that can be traced in all aspects including healthcare. A number of public discussions organised by the Yeghegnadzor Municipality confirmed that the Vayots Dzor community faces serious problems in the social and healthcare areas. The healthcare services and disease prevention awareness are not at sufficient levels, while medical services in Yerevan are either difficult to access, or expensive. The situation is particularly difficult for the vulnerable part of the population: single mothers, children and the elderly. Our project is aimed at improving the healthcare in Vayots Dzor. - What are the aims of the project? - To boost the development of healthy lifestyle in Vayots Dzor, the project will offer affordable and high quality diagnostic medical care to the community, especially to destitute and vulnerable people. The benefit of the option we suggest is in diagnostics, since preventing is more affordable and more effective than treating. - What services does the Centre offer? - The Centre will offer therapeutic physical training, aqua therapy, massage, and swimming, as well as psychotherapy services for the vulnerable part of population. The staff will be trained in Yerevan and will include 6 specialists: 2 swimming trainers, a trainer for training equipment, a hospital nurse, a doctor and a psychologist. - Who can attend the Centre? What are the conditions required? - The Centre is designed to provide the vulnerable part of the population with service for free, yet after the completion of the programme, it will continue functioning at discount prices. Services will also be available to the rest of population, but they will have to pay for them. The money will be used for managing the Centre.
