Today, USAID/Georgia signed an important agreement with the Israeli Agency for International Development and Cooperation. Under this agreement, both the United States and Israel agreed to deepen cooperation in support of Georgia’s development.

Specifically, both countries will cooperate to better support the development of Georgia’s agriculture sector, economic growth, innovation, and employment opportunities for people across the country. The United States and Israel will focus on engaging the private sector to help Georgia advance toward self-reliance, meaning the capacity to plan, finance, and implement its own solutions to development challenges.
