The EIS consists of two parts, one of an in-house opening analysis by DG EPRS and an external briefing document developed by CEPS. The EIS was ready to accompany the European Parliament`s Foreign Affairs Committee (AFET) in its audit work on the annual implementation report of the EU Association Association Agreement Initiative with Georgia. The European Implementation Assessment (EIA) assesses the implementation of the EU-AA Association Agreement, including the comprehensive and comprehensive free trade agreement with Georgia. This assessment is an update of an evaluation published in July 2018 and thus evaluates the implementation of the EU-AA agreement from mid-2018 to the present. The EIS shows progress and pitfalls in implementing reforms in Georgia and stresses the importance of the upcoming legislative elections in the democratization of this Eastern Partnership country. In order to improve their relations, the EU and Georgia have begun negotiations for an Association Agreement (AA) and a comprehensive and comprehensive free trade agreement.  In November 2012, Stefan Fule, Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, said that the AA negotiations could be concluded by November 2013.  In February 2013, Tamar Beruchachvili, Georgia`s Deputy Minister of State for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, said that Georgia had no intention of joining the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia.  At the Eastern Partnership Summit on 29 November 2013, a ceremony was held to parapher the AA by Georgian Foreign Minister Maia Panjikidze and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton.   It was signed on 27 June 2014 and had to be ratified by the EU, Euratom, its Member States and Georgia. A second agreement regulating the country`s participation in EU crisis management operations has also been signed.  The DCFTA is an integral part of the new contractual framework – the association agreement signed with the EU in June 2014 and which forms the fundamental political framework for the enhanced relations between the EU and Georgia. The agreement opens up huge opportunities for development and rapprochement with the EU in all important sectors through political association and economic integration.
It provides for the gradual definition of the best European standards and standards in all areas, including good governance, the rule of law, human rights, justice, social inclusion, media pluralism and the market economy, as well as a gradual economic integration of Georgia into the EU internal market, thus allowing access to the world`s largest consumer market. , without tariffs or quotas.
