Georgia’s European future was the focus of a meeting between Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili and head of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Georgia Janos Herman. 

The two officials met earlier today at the Government of Georgia Administration building in capital Tbilisi.

Georgia’s European integration, the country’s visa liberalisation process with the EU and prospects for closer future bilateral cooperation in the political and economic spheres were heavily discussed at the meeting.

Kvirikashvili stressed Georgia "highly appreciated” the support from the EU and told Herman about his Government’s future intentions and planned reforms that would move the country closer to the EU. 

We discussed a range of topics starting from political issues and ending with visa liberalisation prospects. It was very important for me to get information concerning Georgia’s future steps to the EU directly from the Prime Minister,” said Herman after the meeting. 

The EU top official congratulated Kvirikashvili on his recent appointment to the post and wished him success.
