The parties stressed the fulfillment of the EUAA and DCFTA commitments.
“Mostly, we discussed the ongoing thematic inquiry held within the two Committees on the enforcement of legal changes adopted under the DCFTA commitments and their implementation in practice, including the postponed standards and regulations, which at this stage, despite of being stipulated under the law, appeared to fail. We overviewed our long-term vision on our coordination to ensure the formation of the long-term vision by the state concerning the expedited EU accession, especially in the field of food safety. We agreed on the coordinated collaboration”, - N. Tsilosani stated.
The meeting was attended by the EU Representation Program Manager for Agriculture, Fishing and Food Safety, Georges Dehoux; FAO Program Coordinator, Javier Sanz Alvarez; Chief of the Czech Development Agency, Jan Černík; and FAO Political Advisor, Jumber Maruashvili.
