Armenia declared independence on 21 September 1991, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Armenia is made up of 11 provinces, with Yerevan as the capital, and has a presidential republic form of government. The official language is Armenian, although Russian is also widely used. The currency of Armenia is the dram (AMD).

Major industry sectors in Armenia are mining, information technology, construction, and electricity. The government has made improvements in tax and customs administration in recent years, and Armenia joined the World Trade Organization (WTO) in January 2003. Its gross domestic product (GDP) was AMD 55.8 trillion in 2017.
