The WTO report, along with a policy
statement by the Government, will be the basis for the Trade Policy
Review (TPR) by the Trade Policy Review Body of the WTO.
Economic stability, along with foreign
remittances and investment from the large Armenian diaspora, led to high levels
of economic growth up until the global financial crises hit Armenia in 2009 and
produced a sharp drop in economic activity.
The report says that continued efforts to improve implementation of
institutional and regulatory reforms and to develop a more diversified economy
are key to Armenia's future economic growth.
The report, along with a policy statement by the Government of Armenia, is the
basis for the first Trade Policy Review (TPR) of Armenia by the Trade Policy
Review Body of the WTO on 6 and 8 April 2010.
The following documents are available in MS Word format.

Trade Policy Reviews are an exercise, mandated in the WTO agreements,
in which member countries’ trade and related policies are examined and
evaluated at regular intervals. Significant developments that may have
an impact on the global trading system are also monitored. For each
review, two documents are prepared: a policy statement by the
government of the member under review, and a detailed report written
independently by the WTO Secretariat. These two documents are then
discussed by the WTO’s full membership in the Trade Policy Review Body
(TPRB). These documents and the proceedings of the TPRB’s meetings are
published shortly afterwards.
copies of previous TPR publications are available for sale from the
WTO Secretariat, Centre William Rappard, 154 rue de Lausanne, 1211
