The European Union in Georgia

The EaP Leaders meeting ended with strong show of committment from the EU.
Efforts to mitigate the consequences of COVID-19 continue. In the past weeks, the EU announced three new projects, which will be implemented by civil society partners across Georgia with focus on victims of domestic violence, internally displaced people, and persons with disabilities. Estonia delivered a shipment of sanitiser to Georgia. We also highlighted some concrete efforts by EU-funded beneficiaries to keep moving forward during and after the crisis, by empowering female farmers, developing a COVID-19 tourism plan, or developing their tourist destination as Château Iveri has done. As always, a comprehensive list of COVID-related actions can be found on our Delegation website.
On June 2-8, the EU Delegation to Georgia marked Green Week and World Environment Day together with the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Agriculture in Georgia. The information campaign Together for Better Environment highlighted how all our individual efforts are important to create a better environment around us.
On the occasion of Europe Day, the EU Ambassador, Carl Hartzell invited the public to ask questions. The questions together with the Ambassador's answers are now available. The Ambassador also attended the re-opening of Mziuri park in Tbilisi, and spent a full day with TV Formula's Droeba programme.
