PM Kvirikashvili: People all over Georgia need to be aware of EU benefits

Friday, January 29
Georgia’s Prime Minister believes more can be done to ensure the entire population of Georgia, especially those living in rural areas, is aware of the benefits of assimilating with the European Union (EU).

PM Giorgi Kvirikahsvili today said the Government will elaborate a strategy to provide a comprehensive information campaign targeting people in Georgia’s regions about the benefits Georgia receives from the EU.

The country’s top official made his comments while meeting with the Governmental Commission of Georgia on EU integration at the Government of Georgia’s Administration building in capital Tbilisi.

PM Kvirikashvili stressed "an important and comprehensive” campaign would be planned by relevant officials to ensure the entire Georgian population was aware of the benefits Georgia gets from the EU, in "all sorts of directions”.

The Georgian people should have information about what opportunities are being provided by the Georgia-EU close cooperation; how Georgia is transforming to offer better life conditions for everybody living in the country.

They should know about their high-level educational and business opportunities that are suggested through various twinning programs,” he said.

Kvirikashvili stressed the EU had supported Georgia as it carried out a range of reforms at the instructional and legislative level that would ensure country’s fast integration into the European space.

In the coming days, the Governmental Commission of Georgia on EU integration is due to approve the 2015 Action Plan for implementing the obligations of the Georgian-EU Association Agreement (AA). (
