Opinion Survey 2019: 62% of Armenians Have a Positive Image of the European Union

The EU NEIGHBOURS east project, in collaboration with ACT LLC, carries out opinion polls in the six EU’s Eastern Partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine) on an annual basis.

According to the 2019 survey:

  • 62% of Armenians have a positive image of the European Union (EU),compared to 48% in 2018. The number of persons with negative opinions of the EU is just 6%.
  • 92% of Armenians (up 12% on 2018) feel relations with the European Union are good - well ahead of the EaP regional average (67%).
  • 61% of people in Armenia trust the EU compared to 48% trusting in the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).
  • 71% of Armenians (up 2% on 2018) are aware of the EU’s financial support to the country, and two thirds feel that EU support is effective (72% – up from 62% in 2016 and compared to a regional average of 54% in the EaP countries).

The purpose of the annual surveys is to investigate and understand better the opinion and the level of awareness that the citizens of the EU’s Eastern partner countries have about the European Union and the EU cooperation with their country.
