EU contribution EUR 14 million
The EU-Georgia Association Agreement, signed on 27 June 2014 and provisionally applied since September 2014, sets out the foundation for political association and economic integration between Georgia and the EU. The Association Agenda, agreed between EU and Georgia, was prepared to facilitate the implementation of the AA and it provides a list of priorities for joint work in the period 2014-2016. The Government of Georgia and the line ministries have developed action plans for implementing the Association Agenda.
The overall objective of the programme is the effective support to Georgia in the implementation of contractual relations between Georgia and the EU and in meeting the objectives set out in the EU-Georgia Agreements. The specific objectives are to enhance the capacity of Georgian public institutions in selected priority areas to comply with commitments set out in the Association Agreement and the Visa Liberalisation and Readmission Agreement; and to support participation of Georgian beneficiary institutions in selected EU programmes.
