EFTA States, Georgia Hold Second Round Of FTA Talks

10 December 2015


The second round of negotiations on a free trade agreement (FTA) between the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) States and Georgia was held from December 1 to 4, 2015, in Geneva, Switzerland.

Expert working groups convened to discuss draft texts in areas such as trade in goods (including technical barriers to trade, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, and trade remedies), trade in services, investment, competition, government procurement, and legal and institutional issues.

According to EFTA, the negotiations were held in a very constructive and efficient atmosphere and substantial progress was achieved in all areas.

The negotiations towards an FTA were preceded by the signing of a Joint Declaration on Cooperation (JDC) between the parties on June 28, 2012, as well as discussions in September 2014 and February 2015.

The third round of negotiations will be held in the first quarter of 2016 in Georgia.
