Conducting trainings, carrying out study visits for employees of the new competition authority in Georgia as well as elaboration and edition of the publication

Georgia has carried out a series of economic reforms, including plans for the creation of an independent anti-monopoly body and the amendment of provisions on free trade and competition law. The proposed changes concerning practices limiting competition were modelled on Polish and German schemes. Earlier, competencies concerning protection of competition had been assigned to an entity structurally subordinate to the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development in Georgia.

In February 2013, a two-day study visit was held for representatives of the newly established Georgian anti-monopoly body to the headquarters of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) in Warsaw. The aim of the meeting was to acquaint participants with the Polish competition protection system in the context of institutional changes in Georgia. In April and May 2013, a representative of UOKiK took part in an international roundtable meeting in Tbilisi on changes in the anti-monopoly law in Georgia, including the establishment of an independent anti-monopoly body.
