On 8–9 August, officials from the Ministry of Culture and Sport of Georgia will visit Austria to learn about the country’s experience in the development of a grassroots sports strategy, as well as methods for its implementation and possible problems to be taken into account.
The visit is being organised by the European Commission’s Technical Assistance and Information Exchange Instrument (TAIEX), in cooperation with the Federal Ministry for the Civil Service and Sport of Austria.
The activity will support Georgia in designing a new framework for the country’s grassroots sports strategy, EUneighbors reports.
TAIEX is a demand-driven tool that supports partner countries with the adaptation of national laws, regulations and quality standards to match those of EU Member States in the framework of Cooperation or Association Agreements signed with the EU. In the Eastern Neighbourhood, TAIEX works with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
