US Ambassador: Georgia’s western integration “important” for economic development, visa-free travel with states

Must read

Robin Dunnigan, the United States Ambassador to Georgia, on Wednesday said western integration was “important” for the economic development of the country and for launching visa-free travel with the US.

I really want more Georgians to travel to the US and have a visa. There are very technical requirements for Georgia to adopt visa-free travel”, she told Rustavi 2 TV channel.

Dunnigan also noted Georgia had visa-free travel agreements with most European Union member states.

I will relate this with the integration of Georgia with the EU – how beneficial it is to join the [bloc], [have] better jobs, better pensions, and also travel becomes easier”, she said.

The US Ambassador also noted prospects for Georgia signing a free trade agreement with her country, pointing out “deeper” economic ties with the US would strengthen the country.

Dunnigan added a free trade deal would contribute to strengthened cooperation in agriculture, technology and digital economy.
