On 1 September, the first meeting of the EU-Armenia Civil Society Platform was held. One of its mandates is to monitor the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA), signed between the Republic of Armenia and the European Union.
The platform consists of civil society representatives from the European Union side, including members of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), and representatives of civil society organisations (NGOs, trade unions and employers) from the Armenian side.
Jan Plešinger, Chargé d’Affaires of the EU Delegation, said that the EU welcomes the establishment of the platform: “A proactive involvement of civil society in policy making and governance reforms is crucial for the transformation process in Armenia, and for contribution to deepening EU-Armenia cooperation.”
