In recent history, these agreements have been signed within the framework of two EU policies: the Stabilisation and Association Process (SAp) and the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP). The EIS consists of two parts, one of an in-house opening analysis by DG EPRS and an external briefing document developed by CEPS. The EIS was ready to accompany the European Parliament`s Foreign Affairs Committee (AFET) in its audit work on the annual implementation report of the EU Association Association Agreement Initiative with Georgia. Association agreements are comprehensive framework agreements between the EU (or its predecessors) and its member states, as well as an external state that governs their bilateral relations. The provision of an association agreement was inserted into the Treaty of Rome, which created the European Economic Community, to enable the Community`s cooperation with the United Kingdom, which had withdrawn from the treaty negotiations at the Messina Conference in 1955. According to the European External Action Service, an agreement that must be classified as AA must meet several criteria:  2. the intention to establish close economic and political cooperation (more than just cooperation); 3. the creation of administrative bodies responsible for the management of cooperation, responsible for making decisions involving the contracting parties; 4. Offering the most favoured treatments in the nation; 5) the creation of a special relationship between the EC and its partner; 6. Since 1995, the clause on respect for human rights and democratic principles has been systematically introduced and is an essential element of the agreement; The EU-funded AA facility supports the adoption of bilateral agreements between the European Union and Georgia.
It helps the Georgian government to deepen Georgia`s integration into the EU, in line with the priorities of the Association Agreement (AA), including its “Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area” (ACFTA) component, in the Association Programme and in the Visa Liberalisation Action Plan (VLAP). A brief guide to the association agreement between the European Union and Ukraine, recently signed and ratified. Trade agreements between the EU and other countries or free trade zones have different implications for national economies. The agricultural industry is most affected when regional farms face competition from large producers who have access to markets in the event of lower tariffs. In major agreements such as the AA with Mercosur, European countries are significantly opposed to cheaper imports of meat and other products.  However, for the automotive and export manufacturing industries, which generally include larger global groups, significant increases in volume are evident for more industrialized members of trade.  Mediterranean countries (Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Palestinian Authority, Syria, Tunisia) and Eastern European countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine, but without Russia, which insists on the creation of four EU-Russia common spaces) fall under the ENP.
