Export-oriented Industrial Policies

Even before the establishment of Arar Foundation, many of its founding team members, in collaboration with EV Consulting, begun working with the Government of Armenia and respective industry associations, toward the elaboration and implementation of export-oriented industrial policies. The aim of the program was in developing a set of effective public policy interventions, allowing Armenian businesses to scale up their export potential, and increase manufacturing output. This project served as a successful example of the public-private partnership model, which led to a sizeable increase in export output in several sectors – pharmaceuticals, wine, jewelry, and textiles, to mention the most successful ones.
