The months to come, however, will be key for Georgia to tackle increasing political polarization and to demonstrate its continued reform commitment, particularly in the areas of electoral and judicial reform. “Georgia continues to be a reliable and important partner for the European Union. We will be closely following political developments over the coming months, in light of the worrying increase in political polarisation in the country. We expect a level playing field and pluralism in the media environment for the elections later this year,” said High Representative/Vice President Josep Borrell (afgebeeld). “The European Union firmly supports Georgia’s territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders. Our engagement in conflict resolution remains strong through the work of the EU Special Representative and the EU Monitoring Mission.”

Neighbourhood and Enlargement Commissioner Olivér Várhelyi said: “It is crucial that Georgia continues to progress on the implementation of key reforms under the EU-Georgia Association Agreement. Additional structural reforms, for instance on financial infrastructure, better integration in global markets, and improving the investment climate are required to make Georgia’s economy more resilient. Continuing to fight abuses of the visa free regime also remains key. The European Union is ready to provide further assistance to support Georgia’s efforts.”
