National Competitiveness Foundation of Armenia

About Us


The NCFA is a newly formed mission-oriented organization working to achieve breakthrough development toward a more competitive Armenia.

The NFCA’s mandate is to improve national competitiveness by developing a strategic vision for Armenia’s future and catalyzing progress toward that vision in a number of strategic areas of the economy. Our focus is on sectors such as tourism, healthcare and education where there is the biggest gap between the potential for excellence and the sector’s current state of competitiveness. In addition, we work on strengthening the enabling environment for business and innovation and on increasing access to networks and know-how as crosscutting priorities.

The NCFA is a non-governmental organization structured as a public-private initiative. Our board of trustees is chaired by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia. The board includes six high-level government representatives, six prominent international businessmen and one representative of the international development community. We work closely with a number of ministries as well as Armenian and international private sector entities.
