Project Description

According to ADB website, the recent agreements and changes in Armenia's trade regime will affect the economy through multiple channels, including trade, migration and investment. This small-scale TA will focus on the trade dimension. The TA will estimate the impact of recent and upcoming changes in Armenia's trade regime on trade patterns and comparative advantages, across products and destination countries. The possibility of building upon the new trade regime to position Armenia in profitable cross-border value chains will also be examined. In particular, Armenia might go beyond just re-exporting to developing processing industries using inputs imported under preferential tariffs.

  • Asian Development Bank (ADB)

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
