Description

The European Union is an Economic and political union of 28 member states that are located primarily in Europe. The EU operates through supra system of supranational independent institution and intergovernmental negotiated decisions by the member states. Some agreements that are mostly related to European countries, as defined by geographic criteria, also include countries outside the continent. Several Regional integration efforts have effectively promoted intergovernmental cooperation and reduced the possibility of regional armed conflict. Other initiatives have removed barriers to free trade in European regions, and increased the free movement of people, labor, goods, and capital across national borders.

The EU offers to countries both bilateral and multilateral measures for enhanced cooperation. The partner countries will come closer to the EU depending on their individual capabilities and timeframe and together Eastern partners will cooperate more on issues related to the EU, share their experience and best practices among themselves.

Despite of non-member countries nowadays it’s clear that problems are increasing in EU countries too. Most of important problem is economical crises which was very actual last a few years. But Georgia and other countries which are near the EU they still want to join this International organization.
