Georgia becomes the 41st member state of the Pompidou Group

Georgia has decided to join the Pompidou Group as of 1 May, thus becoming its 41st member State. This decision is a follow up of the visit of the Executive Secretary to Tbilisi in February, where he participated in the conference “Rehabilitation of drug-dependent prisoners – why should you care?” and had high level contacts with relevant ministries (Justice, Health and Social Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Internal Affairs). The support of the Permanent Representation of Georgia to the Council of Europe also played a decisive role.

Georgia's accession to the Pompidou Group takes place at a symbolic moment, when the country's first chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers is coming close to its successful end.
