Euro POC Conference Opens in Tbilisi

Judicial, legislative and executive branches of the Georgian Government gathered to host government representatives from dozens of countries who came to capital Tbilisi to participate in the international conference about open governance.

"We are constantly improving the governance culture in Georgia as open governance is an essential part of our Government” – with these words yesterday Georgia’s Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili opened the first ever European Region Government Point of Contact (POC) conference in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi.

At the two-day conference Georgia, as host country, will demonstrate the progress it has made in developing an open and transparent government.

Garibashvili welcomed the Open Government Partnership initiative between Georgia and France – two member countries of the Steering Committee – which would allow countries to share with their best practices with others, and said the Georgian Government would support this initiative. 

Georgia Minister of Justice Thea Tsulukiani and France’s State Minister for State Reform and Simplification Thierry Mandon also signed memoranda of cooperation.
