Trade and Sustainability Impact Assessment in support of negotiations on DFCTA between the EU and Georgia
Status: Complated
Project Milestones: Start date: 09.01.2012 End Date: 29.06.2012

ISET-PI played a relatively minor role in this project, supporting a consortium consisting of Ecorys (Netherlands) and CASE (Poland). The study was commissioned by the European Commission (DG Trade). The Georgian component of the study identified considerable compliance costs related to the EU-required Phyto and veterinary controls, reflected in higher prices for meat and meat products and an increase in EU meat exports to Georgia. These findings were reported to the Georgian Prime Minister’s office and to the consortium members.
