The agreement, which is designed for gradual approximation to EU standards and regulations in a broad range of areas including trade, customs procedures and quality controls, does not give a pledge to eventual membership in the EU; but the reforms and approximation process, envisaged by the agreement, are viewed as preparation for potential membership sometime in the future.

Association Agreement

Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said in his speech at the signing ceremony, “June 27 will be remembered as a historic and special day. Today Georgia is given a historic chance to return to its natural environment, Europe, its political, economic, social and cultural space.”
