European Neighbourhood Policy: Implementation of the Objectives of the EU-Georgia Action Plan
Third in a series prepared by the Open Society Georgia Foundation, this report assesses implementation of the EU-Georgia Action Plan by experts from Georgian nongovernmental organizations.
The report identifies and analyzes the problems that hampered the implementation of Georgia's international obligations in 2008-2009 in the following areas:
- development of a free institutional environment for the efficient functioning of media organizations;
- measures to improve the business and investment climate, stimulate economic growth, reduce poverty, ensure social equality, facilitate sustainable development, and harmonize economic legislation and administrative regulations;
- reinforcement of parliamentary oversight as a way to establish good management practices in the field of national security and defence and implement democratic control of armed forces, and expansion of EU-Georgia cooperation in battling common challenges.
