Though Armenia has registered a subtle positive shift in fighting corruption, the sector still has major challenges to address.

On the International Anti-Corruption Day Varuzhan Hoktanyan, Head of the Transparency International Anticorruption Center; Suren Krmoyan, Deputy Minister of Justice; and Karen Zadoyan, Head of the Armenian Association of Young Lawyers, Coordinator at the Anti-Corruption Coalition of Civil Society Organizations spoke on the anti-corruption strategies and the current situation in Armenia.

Varuzhan Hoktanyan said the Transparency International Anticorruption Center will publish Armenia’s Corruption Perceptions Index for the current year on January 27, 2016.

“Instead we have the Freedom House Report. The index of 5.25 is the same as it has been last three years. Armenia’s ranking is far from being good but it has changed for the better over the recent years,” said Hoktanyan.

Suren Krmoyan believes the recent improvements are not sufficient.

“This year the Government set up an Anti-Corruption Council which held its first meeting. The next one is scheduled for the late December. At the first meeting the anti corruption strategy for 2015-2018 was not approved,” Krmoyan said.
