Armenia is a member of more than 40 international organizations, including the United Nations; the Council of Europe; the Asian Development Bank; the Commonwealth of Independent States; the World Trade Organization; World Customs Organization; the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation; and La Francophonie. It is a member of the CSTO military alliance and participates in NATO's Partnership for Peace program. Since January 2015, Armenia became a member of Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), which is a political and economic union between Russian Federation, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia. The core objective of EEU is to have a Single Economic Space and to develop a single market for achieving the "four freedoms", namely the free movements of goods, capital, services and people.

In addition, a permanent solution for the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has not been reached despite the mediation provided by organizations such as the OSCE. The closure of Azerbaijani and Turkish borders has devastated the currently closed. This has had an impact on the economy because Armenia is a net-importer country and highly depends on outside supplies of energy and most raw materials. Land routes through Georgia and Iran are inadequate or unreliable
