Yerevan, Armenia – On May 7, the USAID-funded Tax Reform Project held a public presentation of the results of the Taxpayers’ Perception Survey 2013.

Armenia presents a particularly challenging and unique development context because of its geopolitical constraints and unresolved conflict with Azerbaijan, its energy dependency, the influence of an engaged and diverse Diaspora, Russia’s dominance in major sectors, and the small size and population dynamics of the country.
