In April 2009 Lithuania and Georgia signed the Charter on European and Euro-Atlantic Integration. The document is the basis for enhancing consultations between the two countries on all levels and developing new mechanisms for bringing Georgia closer to EU and NATO structures.

Jointly implemented projects aim to assist Georgia with fulfilling its goals and aspirations, which include good governance, democratization and economic development. Organizing conferences for local authorities and the representatives of central government for greater public engagement, reconstruction of educational and cultural buildings, establishing E-centers in various regions of Georgia and promoting partnerships between Georgian and Lithuanian business communities are some of the projects that Lithuania has implemented in the framework of Development Cooperation.    

Georgia and Lithuania are actively cooperating in the fields of defense, economy, culture and education.
