ABOUT US

Euro-region “EuroCaucasus” was established in 2009 by Armenian and Georgian municipalities with support from the National Association of Local Authorities of Georgia (NALAG) and the Communities Association of Armenia (CAA). The founding Declaration was signed in Tbilisi by Mr. Emin Yeritsyan - President of CAA, Mr. Mamuka Abuladze - President of NALAG, the mayor of the city of Vanadzor (Armenia) and the mayor of the municipality of Bolnisi (Georgia). The founding forum was attended by high level representatives from Armenian and Georgian central authorities as well as representatives from international organisations and foreign diplomatic missions accredited in Georgia. 

Euro Caucasus unites 4 municipalities from Georgia (Dmanisi, Bolnisi, Marneuli and Ninotsminda) and municipalities from three Marzes from Armenia (Tavush, Lori and Shirak). Euro-region “EuroCaucasus” is the result of a long and successful cooperation between the Local Governments’ Associations of Armenia (CAA) and Georgia (NALAG). It is for the first time in the Caucasus that municipalities entered in cross-border cooperation and established an institutional body to achieve harmonized development and economic prosperity.

 

Leaders of municipalities and communities from Armenia and Georgia express their will to promote cooperation and development for the sake of their citizens and future generations.  Members of EuroCaucasus recognize the principle of sovereignty and integrity of their national states and express strong political will to cooperate for achieving peace, democracy and development in entire region.

Members of EuroCaucasus state that the organization is open for municipalities from all three countries of the South Caucasus. EuroCaucasus’ policy is to expand a regime of cooperation among the municipalities across Georgian-Azerbaijan borders and hopes that in the future cross-border cooperation in the south Caucuses will have a multilateral nature, involving all regional stakeholders and institutions. It is EuroCaucasus’ believe that, like in Europe, cross-border cooperation will serve as an efficient tool for integration and democratic stability in the Caucasus.
