10th anniversary of Eastern Partnership on Agenda at International Conference in Georgia
On 11–12 July, the Georgian city of Batumi will host an international conference entitled “Georgia’s European Way”.
The event will bring together high-level officials and representatives from academia, the non-governmental sector and business sector from the EU and its six Eastern partner countries. President of the European Council Donald Tusk will also attend the event.
The conference will be dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the Eastern Partnership and will assess progress with the 20 deliverables for 2020 and current geopolitical context. The event will offer specific thematic sessions highlighting major areas of cooperation, where participants will share new ideas on further strengthening the Partnership and advancing European integration processes beyond 2020.
Two parallel events: the Eastern Partnership Investment Forum and Donors’ Annual Assembly of the Eastern Partnership Technical Assistance Trust Fund will take place alongside the conference.
Participants of the conference will also deliberate on the processes of democratic transformation, developments in Black Sea security and ongoing conflicts in the region and discuss the projects in the fields of transport, energy and digital connectivity that aim at deeper economic integration of the partners with the EU.
