“Support to improve the bankruptcy system in Armenia” Project The Project is funded by UK Good Governance Fund (GGF). It is implemented in consortium with ELL Partnership Law Firm. An efficient and responsive bankruptcy system is one of the key features of a functioning business environment. A well-functioning bankruptcy system protects the interests of all parties faced with bankruptcy, while creating conducive conditions for a “fresh start” for distressed businesses. In order to this, the project aims to deliver the following outcome: A more efficient and responsive bankruptcy system, providing increased transparency and enhanced safeguards for both investors and entrepreneurs. This will be achieved through the outputs set out below: Output 1: Assessment (monitoring) of the legislative and practical elements of the current bankruptcy system, including identification of key systemic gaps and comparison against international good practice. Output 2: Development of a road map with an action plan for bankruptcy system reform, based on the main findings identified through the Output 1 assessment. Output 3: Development of an outline of an electronic interoperable platform for administering bankruptcy cases (e-bankruptcy), specifying the overall architecture of the e-platform, including functionality, scalability and system requirements. “ELL Partnership” presented the report on bankruptcy research. In particular, data collection activities have been carried out in the following stages: Public Opinion Survey, which includes interviews with legal entities and individuals who have been bankrupt or are still in the process of bankruptcy over the past three years, conducting in-depth interviews and focus group interviews with field specialists and Ministries. The survey was aimed at revealing the problems arising in different stages of the bankruptcy process in Armenia, as well as the expectations and positions of policy makers and key players in this field, as well as their possible solutions.
