Tigran Avinyan attends Digital Solutions for Cross-Border Cooperation and Trade Facilitation conference


On November 18, Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan attended a regional conference referred to as “Digital Solutions for Cross-Border Cooperation and Trade Facilitation.”

“Dear Mr. Mikuriya,
Dear Guests,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am pleased to welcome you to the Digital Solutions for Cross-Border Cooperation and Trade Facilitation conference.

Our government keeps in focus any program implemented by the State Revenue Committee of the Republic of Armenia, given the importance we attach to the agency’s smooth and uninterrupted operations in ensuring sustainable economic development.

We highly appreciate the assistance provided by international institutions in developing tax and customs services in our country, for instance the EU-supported Facilitating Migration and Border Management Program.

The digitization of trade processes and the digitized exchange of data between customs authorities is a requirement of our time, the proper implementation of which will simplify trade and make it possible to more effectively manage cross-border risks. In this regard, close and mutually beneficial cooperation between government agencies, the private sector, international organizations and customs authorities of regional countries is significant. It is no coincidence that today’s conference will kick off with the signing of bilateral documents between the SRC of the Republic of Armenia and the Revenue Service of Georgia, the SRC of the Republic of Armenia and the Customs Service of Iran, which indicates that cross-border cooperation can lead to positive changes in the region, which in turn will promote the development of our countries and the strengthening external relations.

Dear Colleagues,

The Armenian government supports the activities of public agencies moving along the path of digitization and modernization. The State Revenue Committee boasts great achievements in this field, such as the one-stop-shop system applied in foreign trade transactions, which provides automation of a number of customs procedures, automated receipt of a number of permits provided by other departments, and the organization of electronic exchange of information with the customs authorities of other countries.

As a follow-up to the aforementioned achievements, the SRC is implementing new ambitious projects on mechanized training, big data analysis and the introduction of artificial intelligence tools. All these steps are aimed at digitizing cross-border trade and are a step forward towards paperless trade. I think that during these two days you will have time to familiarize yourself with these decisions and analyze them in more detail with the expert community.

I welcome this conference, which has brought together a large group of experts knowledgeable in this area. I expect it to become a strong incentive for continued mutual assistance and cooperation.

Thank you.”

During the forum, bilateral documents were signed between the State Revenue Committee of Armenia and the Ministry of Finance of Georgia, as well as between the State Revenue Committee of Armenia and the Customs Service of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
