For Ukraine

For Georgia

The interstate program of long-term economic cooperation between Ukraine and Georgia for 1999-2008


Between Ukraine and Georgia more than 70 bilateral documents are concluded.

Fundamental documents in relations of two States are the Treaty of friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance, the Declaration on bases of the economic relations and on perspectives of development of cooperation and general approaches concerning questions of the international relations.

In deepening of the external economic relations such intergovernmental agreements are important:

about free trade,

about production cooperation,

about assistance and mutual protection of investments.

Development of bilateral cooperation will be promoted by signed agreements on such directions of cooperation:


payment and settlement,


to the military,


on humanitarian issues.

Thus between Ukraine and Georgia the due bilateral contractual legal base on essentially new bases, the conventional legal mechanisms is created. It will create effective legal, economic premises for further development trade and economic and sci-tech cooperation between business entities on the principles of market economy of both countries.

At the same time, radical changes which took place in economy of Ukraine and Georgia after declaration of independence by both states formation of market mechanisms was followed by weakening of economic and cooperation bonds, considerable declining production and deeper reducing mutual goods turnover.

In the conditions of violation of the created earlier cooperation bonds, instability of national cash systems and deterioration in financial condition of the companies, imperfection of system of settlement, asymmetry of systems of oblaganiye tax the structure of goods turnover worsened.

In last years one of the important directions of development of cooperation of Ukraine and Georgia in economic sferesozdania of joint production structures which promote recovery and development of cooperation and technological bonds of the companies and industries, preserving and more effective use of the specialization of the companies created earlier in the field of mechanical engineering, chemistry, fuel and energy and military-industrial complexes, mobilization of financial and investment resources by means of creation of financial and industrial groups poorly developed. The legal basis for the organization and activities, such structures in legal acts of Ukraine and Georgia still significantly differs that is serious brake on the way of their creation.
