On 31 January, the EU and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia marked the successful completion of the project “Facility for the Implementation of the Association Agreement in Georgia”.

For more than three years, considerable efforts have been undertaken within the project to facilitate the implementation of the Association Agreement, concluded by the EU and Georgia in 2014.

“The EU-Georgia Association Agreement is the foundation of EU-Georgia relations and a roadmap for our future cooperation,” said Ambassador Carl Hartzell, Head of EU Delegation to Georgia. “Besides delivering visa free travel and increasing access to the EU single market for Georgian producers, it also outlines key reforms that will have a tangible and positive impact on the day to day lives of Georgians.”

The EU is supporting the Association Agreement implementation process through several programmes and projects. The EU-funded Facility for the implementation of the Association Agreement is a flagship project, among others.
