Looking Forward: Global Competitiveness of the Armenian Economy

AIPRG Annual Conference
May 17-18, 2008, Washington, DC

The Armenian International Policy Research Group (AIPRG) held its Annual Conference on the economy of Armenia on May 17-18, 2008, at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, DC (with direct broadcasting in World Bank Yerevan Office).

After more than a decade of transition from planned to market-based economy, Armenia undertook important reforms and experienced high rates of economic growth in recent years. In order to sustain this growth and ensure further economic development, the country will need to design and implement second-generation reforms based on lessons learned during this transition  and aimed at: (i) solidifying  the achievements of the transition period; (ii) ensuring a fair and level playing field for private sector development; (iii) choosing strategic directions for the country’s export-oriented branches of the economy; and (iv) laying foundations for future development by strengthening institutions and modernizing social sectors, especially public education.

The conference was sponsored by Eurasia Partnership Foundation, the World Bank and United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
