The concept for the European Business Association in Georgia was devised by the founders in 2012 and presented to the European Delegation and other European embassies. At that time it was decided that Georgia was not ready for a pure play European Business Association.
Following the signing of the Association Agreement in 2014 and the granting of the Visa-free regime in 2017, the initiative was again activated with help from the European Business Associations in Moldova and Armenia and in close consultation with diplomats and advisors from the European Union in Brussels and Georgia.
The European Business Association in Georgia is differentiated from other associations in it’s European membership structure, online format and special focus on SME and regional development. Operating across the whole of Georgia, the Association is prohibited from supporting political parties and companies that do not meet the Association’s strict Code of Conduct.
