EU4BUSINESS IN ARMENIA

The vast majority of businesses in Armenia are SMEs. They are responsible for nearly 80% of all jobs in the country. Despite this, they make up only 27% of Armenia’s GDP. EU4Business works to build a conducive business and investment environment to help SMEs reach their full potential. Programmes improve access to finance and new markets, target women entrepreneurs and SMEs working in green energy and also encourage social entrepreneurship. EU4Business is part of the EU’s wider efforts in the country which make it one of Armenia’s main economic partners.
