In Imereti, Ambassador Hartzell held a meeting with the Tskaltubo Local Action Group (LAG) established in 2020 with EU support. LAG Tskaltubo, consisting of 230 members, has developed a long-term Local Development Strategy and carried out two rounds of EU-funded grant competition, resulting in the funding of 20 initiatives in agriculture, tourism, social issues, culture, education, sport and youth.

Ambassador Hartzell also met representatives of initiatives that received EU-funding. They presented their products, such as honey, wine, artisan bread, batik handicrafts, etc.
