The European Union and Armenia will hold a first round of talks on
a bilateral agreement on Free Trade Area

The European Union and Armenia will hold a first round of talks on
a bilateral agreement on the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area
in June 19-20 in Brussels, Armenian Deputy Economy Minister Garegin
Melkonyan said on Wednesday.

“Armenia was able to overcome all the EU preconditions and [we are
allowed] to start the first round of negotiations to launch the
process of signing the document,” Melkonyan said.

The EU is Armenia’s main trade partner, exporting 47 percent of its
products to Europe. The agreement would allow Armenia to diversify its
export routes and enter the European market on favorable conditions,
he added.
