Georgia remains committed to the implementation of the EU-Georgia Association Agreement, despite the COVID-19 related challenges. Further efforts are however needed, notably in the field of judicial reform and tackling polarisation in Georgian politics and media. These are key findings of the European Union’s annual Association Implementation Report on Georgia. The report, published ahead of the next EU-Georgia Association Council on 16 March, outlines the country’s implementation of reforms under the EU-Georgia Association Agreement over the past year.
The report shows that Georgia should bring the selection procedure for Supreme Court Judges fully in line with the recommendations of the Council of Europe Venice Commission and to ensure that it is carried out in a transparent manner.
The report also finds that it will be crucial to ensure an inclusive, green and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 crisis and to make further progress on digitalisation and digital literacy. Structural reforms remain important, as they enhance Georgia’s investment climate and trade potential and make its economy less vulnerable to external factors.
