Among the discussed issues was the involvement of the Council in the ongoing reforms related to Georgia’s European Union integration. Members of the Council noted they would “actively support all steps and reforms” contributing to the integration in the bloc and implementation of the 2014-signed Association Agreement with the EU.

The Council is an independent advisory body to the Prime Minister of Georgia, tasked with promoting a dialogue between the business community, international organisations, donors and the Government for the development of a “favourable, non-discriminatory, transparent and fair business and investment climate in Georgia”.
