  • Poland and Armenia combines a long tradition of co-existence, extending even from the fourteenth century, when the Armenians found themselves in the Kingdom of Poland  and King Casimir the Great in 1356 approved their religious individuality and self-government.

    Today Polish - Armenians relations have a stable and permanent character. Poland established diplomatic ties with the Republic of Armenia on February 26, 1992 r . In both capitals are diplomatic representation at the level of the embassies.

    In March of 2010 it was signed Polish – Armenian intergovernmental agreement on economic cooperation, which entered into force on 16 June 2010. On the basis of it was set up mixed intergovernmental commission with the participation of government representatives and businessmen of both countries. After the conclusion of the agreement, interest of Polish companies on the Armenian market increased, they also started to participate for public tenders (Polish Security Printing Works in 2011 won orders for digital tachographs and modern printing documents) - is present in the market of Armenia to this day.

In 2015 successfully were accomplished 2 projects for a total amount of approx. 250 thousand EUR (renovation of nursery and care facility).

    In 2013 Armenia has decided to join the Customs Union and the Eurasian Economic Union. In December 2015 Armenia started negotiations of a new framework agreement regulating cooperation of Yerevan with the European Union.
