UntitledThe EU and Georgia have today adopted the EU-Georgia Association Agenda, at a meeting between the chief negotiators, just the day before the historic signature of the EU-Georgia Association Agreement. The Association Agenda establishes a set of jointly agreed priorities for the period 2014-2016 with a view to preparing for the implementation of the Association Agreement, including the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA).
