As donor family representative, Austrian Development Agency CEO Brigitte Öppinger-Walchshofer had sent a letter in connection with the signing ceremony.
The letter reads in part, "The program will be an important step in the reform process to help improve the regulatory framework and the Armenian business environment, in particular. We are confident the cooperation with the donor consortium will boost reform efficiency.”
The international donor organizations herewith express readiness to support the introduction of "regulatory guillotine” quick reforms tool that can help upgrade Armenia’s regulatory policy and improve the business environment, promoting reduction of red tape and productivity increase in management.
