The European Union (EU) launched website EU4Georgia.ge, which provides detailed information on over 160 active EU-funded projects in Georgia, Trend reports referring to the EU.
In addition to the detailed project information, the website features an interactive map showing the impact of select EU-supported interventions throughout the country. This feature will be expanded to more projects on a rolling basis.
The website will also provide regular news updates on the projects, as well as a list of opportunities available via EU funding.
A Georgian language version of the website is planned to be launched this summer.
As reported, the EU delivers over 350 million lari (approximately 100 million euros) of assistance to Georgia every year in a wide array of areas, including economic and private sector support, agriculture, education, public administration, justice, environment, transport and culture. Most of the assistance arrives via projects implemented by international and local partners.
“We are happy to now be able to bring this information together in one place to help everybody to be better informed of all the projects that the EU is engaged in,” said EU Ambassador to Georgia Carl Hartzell.
According to him, this website is a contribution to EU ongoing efforts to ensure that all Georgians are aware of the EU-Georgia partnership and its positive impact.
