Georgia – an intersection on the Silk Road between Europe and Asia

Georgia flag

On May 26th, Georgia celebrated its 101st Independence Day. It was three decades after demonstrators took to the streets of Tbilisi to mark the event, for the first time since the Soviet occupation.

In the past thirty years, Georgia has dramatically improved its relationship with the West. Working with NATO on security in the Black sea, it contributes to the  Alliance’s operations and is recognized as an ‘aspiring’ member of the organization; Trading and political ties with the European Union have also grown stronger, with the entry into force in 2016 of an Association Agreement, including a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA),  which ‘strives for political association and economic integration’.
