The main objective of EBA is to support representatives of European Business Community in Armenia and facilitate the integration and cooperation between Armenia and the European Union as well as to improve business environment, encourage foreign investments and improve corresponding legislative framework.

The EBA is functioning as a voice of EU businesses in Armenia to direct their needs toward Armenian authorities and advocating their interests for the elimination of corresponding obstacles. The EBA is promoting fair, open and productive relationship between business and the government. As a result it provides enhancement of competitiveness of the private sector through company capacity strengthening, increasing the transparency of governance and the business environment. At the same time the EBA is increasing the level of integration and cooperation of Armenian and European companies through conducting appropriate activities for enlarging business connections, distributing information on corresponding requirements (certificates, quality control and standards, licensing, etc.) and other activities. The EBA is periodically organizing conferences, seminars business meetings, networking events for local and EU businesses operating in Armenia. Based on companies’ need assessment EBA is making proposals to the government on legislation issues that can potentially improve business climate in Armenia. EBA is advocating the interests of EU and local organizations that have impediments and meet some difficulties in legal, tax, customs or any other sphere of activity.

EBA activities are complementing each other to get more comprehensive impact on business and investment environment improvement in Armenia.
