Representatives of the European Parliament and parliaments of 17 EU Member States, Candidate States and Eastern Partner countries are meeting in the Georgian capital Tbilisi for an international parliamentary conference on 4-5 December. They will discuss EU integration as a framework for promoting internal reforms, and talk about the benefits and challenges associated with the EU-inspired transformation.
The event will focus on the political and economic reforms inspired by the Association Agreements in different countries, EU partnership instruments and cooperation frameworks, legislative challenges on the way to implementing the EU-driven reforms, and the economic impacts of European integration on business and trade.
The conference will also pay attention to citizen expectations before and after EU integration, ways of countering anti-European propaganda, and to the future of the Union, considering the 60th anniversary of the European cooperation.
