10 public schools, 7 kindergartens, 4 public buildings have been renovated with the EU’s support to provide a greener and healthier environment to the citizens of Georgia. In addition, businesses have been supported to introduce energy efficiency measures, thus lowering operation costs and investing the savings in new opportunities and jobs. These are only some of the results of EU’s work to improve energy efficiency in Georgia.

To raise awareness about the benefits of energy efficiency and EU’s work to this end in the country, the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia is launching an information campaign on energy efficiency under the slogan “Doing More with Less”.

“Energy efficiency in Georgia is a key priority for the European Union. A greener environment, enhanced energy security, more jobs, prosperous families and warmer houses are only some of the benefits of improved energy efficiency. Besides supporting the legislative reform process, we have made continued efforts to help businesses and citizens. Reliable and affordable energy is essential for communities and household, and our goal is to continue supporting energy efficiency initiatives to help improve people’s lives”, - stated Carl Hartzell, EU Ambassador to Georgia.

Energy efficiency matters. It has the potential to contribute to lowering the costs on a household and economy-wide level, boost economic growth, sustainable growth and job creation. Apart from that, energy efficiency is one of the ways to reduce demand for energy imports and to strengthen the country’s energy independence.

The EU has been assisting Georgia’s energy sector for over a decade. This includes support to the Government to promote better policy and help modernize the sector, work with partners to support and raise energy efficiency initiatives throughout the country. By encouraging private sector participation, the EU also supports the government’s ultimate objectives of creating jobs and improving the quality of life. Clean energy transition will be at the center of reforms to accelerate the development of modern and reliable energy infrastructure that will decrease use of greenhouse gas emissions.

Over the course of the next three weeks, we will share success stories of projects implemented with the EU’s support in Georgia. The campaign will promote the benefits of energy efficiency, showcase the projects that impact the communities and environment they live in and motivates change.

Underlining the inadmissibility of any third party making statements to revise the Bucharest Summit decisions, as well as of any attempt to impact this process, the sides referred to Russia’s occupation and annexation of the neighbouring countries’ territories and the failure to comply with its international obligations as the major challenge currently threatening the European security architecture.
The Foreign Minister reaffirmed that European and Euro-Atlantic integration is the Georgian People’s firm choice and that Georgia will continue to use all available formats to the maximum extent possible to accelerate the process. Zalkaliani thanked the U.S. Government for its support of Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic course and for its practical and political assistance in this regard.
The sides further agreed that, given the Russian Federation’s increasingly aggressive rhetoric, it is important that Georgia and the U.S. remain in very close coordination and take concerted steps.

Ambassador Kelly Degnan: The Emergency Operation Center training is just another example of the kind of training that the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency has been doing for years to help build Georgia’s capacity, to counter weapons of mass destruction threats, and other kinds of emergencies in Georgia and the region.

The U.S. Congressmen call on the United States Trade Representative for strengthening bilateral trade and investment ties with Georgia

Published in Economics
Tuesday, 14 December 2021 15:29

In their letter to the United States Trade Representative, the U.S. Congressmen called on Ambassador Katherine Tai for strengthening bilateral trade and investment ties with Georgia.
“Georgia is a critical ally of the United States. As an evolving democracy, Georgia must make important political and economic reforms which will increase stability in the Caucasus region, and the prospect of enhanced trade relations with the United States could catalyze those reforms” – reads the letter.
The Letter highlights the strategic geographical location of Georgia that makes it an ideal partner in an area of the world that is experiencing increasing tensions and instability.
According to the Congressmen, The United States and Georgia have a strong foundation on which to deepen trade relations, including the U.S.-Georgia Trade and Investment Framework Agreement, a High-level Trade Dialogue, a Bilateral Investment Treaty. Georgia has also been recognized by the European Union as a high-value trade partner and conduit to energy security, evidenced by the development of an Association Agreement and a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) between the European Union and Georgia.
Based on the letter, greater economic engagement with the United States at the appropriate time could further propel Georgia’s market reforms and pro-investment policies and give American goods and services a greater foothold in South Caucasus, Central Asia, Turkey and Eastern Europe. Of particular importance, in this light, is free trade with the key partner. “At present, the United States does not have any free trade agreements in the region. Enhanced trade discussions could also pave the way for greater economic relationships between the United States and Georgia that would send a powerful signal that American values of democracy and market-based rules are alive and well in an area rife with oppression and state-driven authoritarian government systems.
The Congressmen also pay special attention to Georgia-U.S. strong partnership; Georgia’s significant contribution to the U.S. military efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq; Georgia’s leading role in supporting U.S. values and priorities in the South Caucasus and beyond.
The is signed by the members of congress: Carol D. Miller, Adam Kinzinger, Steve Womack, John Rose, Jimmy Gomez, Gerald E. Connolly, Dan Crenshaw Alex X. Mooney.
