President of the Riigikogu Eiki Nestor acknowledged Prime Minister of Georgia Giorgi Kvirikashvili for carrying out reforms, and congratulated him on the entry into force of visa free regime with the European Union.

“When reforms are being implemented, it is very important to explain the need for them to the people, because without the support of the society, changes are not possible. Estonia will continue supporting Georgia also in the future,” Nestor said.

Nestor asked about the amendments to the Constitution of Georgia, and Kvirikashvili answered that in implementing them, the countries of Europe were used as examples, like the election of the President of Germany by the federal convention.

Kvirikashvili said that Nestor’s recent visit to Georgia had been a very visible and relevant event for the Georgians.

Kvirikashvili thanked Estonia for supporting Georgia’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and reforms, some of which, like the tax reform, the e-government reform and the reform of the IT systems of the country, had been implemented following the example of Estonia.

Georgia is one of the priority target countries of the development cooperation of Estonia. Estonia allocates annually nearly a million euro to implement the projects in Georgia, mainly in support of democratic government systems, economic development, entrepreneurship and education.

The meeting was also attended by Chairman of the National Defence Committee Hannes Hanso.
