EU, Georgia Adopt Revised Association Agenda
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 21 Nov.'17 / 17:07

The European Union and Georgia adopted a revised EU-Georgia Association Agenda for the period 2017-2020, the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia said on November 21.

The new Association Agenda builds on the previous document for 2014-2016 and is designed to facilitate the implementation of the Association Agreement, including the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA).

“The revised Association Agenda maintains a practical framework for achieving political association and economic integration between the EU and Georgia, and sets out an ambitious program of reforms for the years to come,” the EU Delegation said.

“It addresses a wide range of issues such as  strengthening democratic institutions, the rule of law, independence of the judiciary, respect for human rights; cooperation on foreign and security policy as well as peaceful conflict resolution. It also incorporates economic and trade elements, including a dedicated DCFTA chapter and cooperation in a number of sectors such as energy, transport, employment and social policy,” reads the statement.

“The EU will continue supporting Georgia in a number of ways as it implements the Association Agenda. These include financial support, technical expertise and advice, information sharing and capacity building,” the EU Delegation also noted.

Georgia and the European Union adopted the previous Association Agenda on the eve of signing of the Association Agreement in Brussels on June 27, 2014.
