Carl Hartzell, EU Ambassador to Georgia talked about the importance of the agreement on Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Areas (DCFTA) during an economic conference “Georgia and the World 202” held in Tbilisi.

EU Ambassador was one of the rapporteurs at the panel „Georgia on the EU market – Achievements and Challenges.”

Hartzell said in his speech that the agreement about Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Areas increases Georgia’s competitiveness and boosts its accessibility opportunities on the global markets.

“The agreement about Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Areas means not only free trade. This is a project, which puts Georgia on the path to competitiveness. Much effort is needed but as soon as the country satisfies the set standards, Georgia’s opportunities to global markets will be opened,” EU Ambassador said.
