 Through the efforts of the European Union and partner countries, the region has seen numerous new opportunities over the last ten years to strengthen economic and trade relations, to strengthen interconnections between people, as well as in the fields of energy, transport and communications and more.

 With the joint efforts of our European friends and our country, the Eastern Partnership has given Georgia a significant boost to its rapprochement with the European Union, which has been particularly strengthened in recent years.  Cooperation and involvement of the EU in all areas is particularly important nowadays.   In this regard, cooperation in the Eastern Partnership format allows us to use programs that are needed in different areas of our country’s development.
