Civil Society Consultations on Annual Report for Georgia

It is our pleasure to announce that the Delegation of the European Union is preparing the Annual Report 2023 on Georgia, in the framework of the Enlargement Package. This is the first report for Georgia.

For each of the criteria – political, economic criteria and European standards (chapters) – an evaluation will be made of Georgia’s progress since the adoption of the Commission Opinion on Georgia's application for membership of the European Union (adopted on 17.06.2022[1]) as well as the Analytical Report (adopted on 01.02.2023[2]). Progress will be measured in terms of concrete decisions taken, adopted legislation, measures implemented and structures currently in place and functioning.

Seen the key role of Civil Society Organisations in Georgia’s European Integration process, as well as the contribution thereto of International Organisations and development partners, we welcome your input through written contributions to feed into our analysis and in-depth assessment.
