The EIS shows progress and pitfalls in implementing reforms in Georgia and stresses the importance of the upcoming legislative elections in the democratization of this Eastern Partnership country. The Association Agreement (including the CCFTA), signed on June 27, 2014; Georgia was ratified on 18 July 2014 and has been applied provisionally since September 2014 and marks the beginning of a new qualitative process in EU-Georgia relations and is an important step on the road to the European integration process.
The Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Areas (ACFTA) are three free trade zones established between the European Union and Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The CCFTA is part of each country`s EU Association Agreement. They allow Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine to access the European single market in certain sectors and to give European investors in these sectors the same regulatory environment in the associated country as in the EU.  The agreements with the Republic of Moldova and Georgia were ratified and officially entered into force in July 2016, although some of them have already been provisionally implemented. The agreement with Ukraine has been implemented on an interim basis since 1 January 2016 and officially entered into force on 1 September 2017. The agreement regulates dispute resolution. In particular, the dispute settlement agreements in this agreement resolve disputes related to the reporting/use of commercial or commercial matters under the agreement.
