The European Union in Georgia

Summer time does not equal slow-time at the EU Delegation to Georgia. On the COVID-19 front, together with WHO, the EU delivered the largest cargo of personal protective gear to Georgia. We also released a study conducted on the Georgian population’s awareness and opinion regarding COVID-19.
Throughout the last weeks, three new, regional projects have been launched, two to fight organized crime and one on enhancing gender equality.
Further on the local level, together with the French Development Agency, the EU will allocate €65 Million for modernisation of water utilities in Khashuri and together with EIB, €10 million to Credo Bank under its Georgia Outreach Initiative to support MSMEs.
Moreover, eleven municipalities were awarded GEL 5 million in grants for local infrastructure and business development under EU’s Pilot Integrated Regional Development Programme.
There has been two events of handing over front-line document inspection equipment and border surveillance equipment to the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Finally, last week we launched our A Good Harvest campaign, highlighting EU support to Georgian farmers. Stay tuned on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see stories of farmers improving their businesses by using new, modern farming techniques.
And do not miss the opportunity to apply for EU and FAO announce third cycle of agricultural Grant Competition.
