Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili has voiced several programmes which aim to boost the engagement of Georgian emigrants in the country’s everyday life and help them retain close ties with their native country.

One of the initiatives proposes the Georgian diaspora receiving its own MP in the Georgian parliament.

Along with the state agencies, we will work on legislative amendments that will allow for the election of Georgian citizens residing abroad to the parliament of Georgia, Zurabishvili said.
