Close political ties between the two traditionally friendly nations underpinned by shared values and objectives continue to expand thus uncovering new areas for even deeper bilateral cooperation.

Lithuania  remains  one  of  the  most  outstanding  supporters  of  Georgia's  territorial integrity and its Euro-Atlantic intentions. Close political ties between the two traditionally friendly nations underpinned by shared values and objectives continue to expand.

Success of the Eastern Partnership, with the spotlight on Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine represent one of the pillars of Lithuania's foreign policy and dominate its diplomatic agenda. At the same time, Lithuania continues to play the role of the old-good custodian of Georgian file in NATO and spares no efforts to bring Georgia closer to Euro-Atlantic family.

Alongside the excellent political relations, special efforts were made by the governments of both countries to further economic cooperation and boost business ties. In this context the visit of the Prime Minister of Lithuania to Georgia in January 2015 and holding of the Georgia-Lithuania Business Forum served as incentives to that new trend.

It is noteworthy that during the visit of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Lithuania to Georgia the Intergovernmental Agreement on Economic Cooperation that envisages launch of joint Intergovernmental Commission was signed.

Georgia welcomes and attaches particular importance to the establishment of the Intergovernmental Commission  on  Economic  Cooperation  between  Georgia  and  the Republic of Lithuania, the first meeting of which is scheduled to be held in October 2015, and hopes that the work of the commission will advance bilateral economic agenda.
