TBILISI, April 24 (Itar-Tass) — The European Union has assigned 9.73 million euros for strengthening state institutions in Georgia. The document was signed by Georgian Vice-Premier, State Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Giorgi Baramize and head of the EU delegation to Georgia Philip Dimitrov in Tbilisi on Tuesday.
It is important to the European Union to have a solid foundation of the relations with Georgia, and that requires strong state institutions; the program is bound to assist their development, Dimitrov told reporters.
According to the EU delegation, the program will be implemented in 2012-2015 and ensure the institutional development of Georgian departments involved in the negotiations on Georgia’s associated membership in the European Union and a free trade regime. These include the staffs of the prime minister, the state minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration, the Foreign Ministry, the Justice Ministry, the parliament and some others.
