  • Prime Minister of Georgia Congratulates Media Outlets and Journalists on the World Press Freedom Day

    I wholeheartedly congratulate every media outlet and journalists on the World Press Freedom Day.

    Free and independent press based on true values and professionalism is one of the key features defining democracy of any country. Georgian media has gone a long way since regaining independence and endured many challenges, intimidation and pressure.

    Provision of an enabling environment for the independent press has been among our prime goals from day one, when our political team came to power. It has been the aim of numerous reforms that we carried out. The Georgian media landscape is nowadays pluralistic and free. Every condition is created for boosting journalism and its further development. Georgia is an undoubted leader of the region by the World Press Freedom Index and it is ahead of a number of EU member states. It is a great merit of the authorities and society, manifesting in a huge gain for the entire country. Our authorities aspire to facilitate a further development of press freedom in the country.

    Over and above, I pledge support and wish you every success in your future professional endeavors.

    Irakli Garibashvili
