Georgia in Brussels

Message from the Ambassador

Dear Reader, We ended 2014 on a high note with the ratification of the Georgia-EU Association Agreement by the European Parliament and began 2015 with a successfull visit of Commissioner Hahn to Georgia. The continued implementation of the AA and DCFTA, the Riga Summit, the launch of the Tbilisi Silk-Road Forum and many other positive initiatives give great promise to the year ahead. Not least will be the prospects of the Georgian-Estonian film "Tangerines" at the Academy Awards next month. The tale of war and shared humanity in Abkhazia plays upon themes which increasingly resonate through Georgian cinema. The intersections between politics and culture are the focus of this edition of our newsletter. Last year showed that young Georgian artists are becoming increasingly noticed on the international scene, pushing boundaries and tackling bravely questions of social injustice, identity conflicts and violence that often accompany processes of transition. I hope some of what you will discover will encourage your interest in the Georgian art and culture and take up the NYT recommendation to visit Georgia in 2015!
