Free Trade Agreement Between Georgia And Azerbaijan

Posted Dezember 9th, 2020 by admin

Before Brexit came into force, we negotiated with the UK government, signed and ratified the free trade agreement. We now expect the same from Britain. We expect it to ratify the agreement in about a month. It is important that we complete this process in time,“ said Arveladze. The feasibility study on free trade with India is complete and the first round of negotiations will take place shortly. The feasibility study of free trade with Israel is also in its final phase.

The free trade agreement with Turkey came into force in November 2008, with China in January 2018. The Association Agreement („AA“) with the EU was signed and ratified in 2014, including the Comprehensive and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement („ACFTA“). In addition, on 27 June 2016, Georgia signed a free trade agreement with EFTA countries, which allows Georgian products duty-free access to the markets of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Georgia has a free trade system with the European Union (EU), the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Turkey, China and Hong Kong. Deputy Economy Minister Genadi Arveladze met on 8 and 9 February with media representatives on the affairs of the DCFTA, where one of the main topics he discussed was the Georgian Free Trade Agreement.

Free trade with two EFTA members, including Norway and Iceland, came into force in September 2017, while free trade agreements with Switzerland and Liechtenstein came into force in May 2018. Georgia`s liberal trade regimes provide investors with a good opportunity to access not only the country`s 3.7 million people, but also markets across the region, largely due to the absence of tariffs and import duties. To date, Georgia has signed free trade agreements with CIS countries, including Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, as well as its neighbours Turkey, Azerbaijan and Armenia. Georgia also has a free trade agreement with the Republic of China (including Hong Kong). Currently, products manufactured in Georgia have access to one-third of the global consumer market through free trade regimes, which total more than 2.3 billion consumers. Georgia signed the Association Agreement with the EU in 2014, which includes the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) with the European Union (EU). Since 27 June 2014, Georgia has enjoyed a thorough and comprehensive free trade area with the European Union and products made in Georgia can enter the EU market duty-free. . The multilateral agreement between the CIS countries (12 countries) also called for generalized preference regimes for Georgia with the United States, Canada and Japan, resulting in tariffs being reduced to 3,400 exports from Georgia. On 8 and 9 February, a meeting was held with media representatives organised by the Ministry of Economy and the European Union as part of the project `Mechanism for implementation of the EU-Georgia II Association Agreement`.

With regard to border controls, all foreign travellers to Georgia benefit from a very accessible and service-oriented customs policy and administrative protocol.
