Knowledge Note

In late 2011, IFC launched an initiative to strengthen Armenia’s business environment by implementing reforms to taxation, trade logistics, inspections and food safety. However, the project’s launch coincided with the country’s elections, which created uncertainty and sapped political commitment to push through reform. The protracted election and post-election period made it necessary for IFC to seek from the government new confirmation of its commitment to reform.
