PGG II

This project is one of the six projects which constitute the second phase of the EU/CoE Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) programme interventions to support Eastern Partnership countries to counter economic crime.

The project aims to provide tailored assistance responding to the country’s anti-corruption reforms agenda, while addressing issues raised by the Council of Europe monitoring bodies in the areas of corruption and money laundering. It has been designed to contribute to the EU 2020 targets set out in priority area “Strengthening the rule of law and anti-corruption mechanisms,” and is aligned with the cooperation priorities identified in the EU-Armenia Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement, and Council of Europe Action Plan for Armenia 2019-2022.

The overall objective of the project is to increase efficiency of anti-corruption and asset recovery while preventing and combating corruption. The project aims to do so by supporting the Armenian authorities in strengthening legislative and institutional frameworks for anti-corruption and asset recovery, and developing capacities and tools to prevent and suppress economic crimes.
