Frontex renews working arrangement with Georgia

On 11 February, Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, renewed its working arrangement with the Ministry of the Internal Affairs of Georgia. The document was signed by Frontex’s Executive Director Fabrice Leggeri and Georgia’s Minister of Internal Affairs Vakhtang Gomelauri during a virtual ceremony.

The working arrangement was renewed to reflect the strengthened mandate of Frontex, and will lead to a better response to today’s operational needs in the area of border management in full respect of fundamental rights. Under the revised arrangement, Frontex and Georgia reaffirmed their commitment to work together in dealing with irregular migration and fighting cross-border crime, implementation of technical assistance projects, as well as in exchanging information and best practices in the area of border management and return.

Hundreds of Georgian experts have taken part in Frontex-led trainings and capacity building activities, such as the Eastern Partnership IBM Capacity Building Project, as well as participated in Frontex operational activities as observers.
