The National Competitiveness Foundation (the Foundation) is a public-private partnership established by the Government of Armenia and a group of leading private sector representatives from the United States, Russia, the European Union and the Middle East.

The purpose of the Foundation is to develop, implement and monitor projects in sectors – mainly education, health care and tourism – where there is a significant unrealized potential for development and a clear competitive advantage within a regional and global context.

In addition to operating in the sectors mentioned above, the Foundation develops cross-cutting programs to promote competitiveness through increased access to information and know-how. These programs are designed to strengthen telecommunication infrastructure, and increase Armenian knowledge of strategic foreign languages. The governing body of the Foundation is its Board of Trustees, which is composed of government representatives, distinguished international business executives, and representative of the international donor community in Armenia. The Chairman of the Board is the Prime Minister.
