EU’s financial support to Armenia will further enhance, EU Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighborhood Policy Johannes Hahn told a press conference in Yerevan today.
He said they are now working with the Armenian government to identify the spheres of further support, he said.
“Specifically we have just signed a package concerning education innovation worth 23 million, including the Tumo Innovation center, which I have visited and am deeply impressed,” the Commissioner said.
“We have already invested a lot in innovation and we will continue to do so in the future,” he said.
“We are in the midst of negotiations concerning the next multi-financial financial framework within the European Union. We have been talking about 7-year budget from 20121 to 2027,” the EU Commissioner said.
Mr. Hahn reassured that financial support to EU Neighbors will be bigger than the current allocation, which, he said, should have a very positive effect on Armenia.
