(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order declares the Partnership and Co-operation Agreement between the European Communities and their Member States and Georgia, signed on 22 April 1996, to be a Community Treaty as defined in section 1(2) of the European Communities Act 1972. The Agreement establishes a Partnership with the objectives of providing an appropriate framework for political dialogue, supporting Georgia’s efforts to consolidate its democracy, to develop its economy and to complete the transition into a market economy, promoting trade, investment and harmonious economic relations and providing a basis for legislative, economic, social, financial, civil scientific, technological and cultural co-operation. The principal effect of declaring this Agreement to be a Community Treaty as so defined is to bring into play, in relation to it, the provisions of section 2 of the European Communities Act 1972 which provides for the implementation of treaties so specified.
