Georgia’s European Union Integration Commission, led by Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze, on Tuesday adopted an action plan for 2024 for the country’s integration into the EU.

The action plan, created with the involvement of all relevant agencies, includes all directions envisaged by the Association Agreement, signed with the EU in 2014, the Government Administration said.

Kobakhidze highlighted Georgia’s European integration as “one of the most important priorities” of the Government and noted the country’s main goal was to launch accession negotiations with the bloc in the near future.

The participants of the meeting reviewed the action plan of nine priorities, outlined by the European Council, new requirements related to Georgia’s membership in the Single Euro Payments Area and effective measures necessary for planning, implementing and monitoring the process of legal rapprochement with the EU.

The prospects of integration into the European single market based on the principles of a deep and comprehensive free trade space were also discussed at the Commission meeting.

Deputy Foreign Minister Teimuraz Janjalia and Vice PM and Economy Minister Levan Davitashvili presented the annual report on the implementation of the 2023 action plan for Georgia’s EU integration.
