In 2009 the joint declaration on Mobility Partnership was signed between Georgia and the European Union member states, which promotes among others managing legal labor migration in the form of circular migration.

The development and testing of a pilot scheme on skilled circular migration that matches Georgia’s and Germany’s needs is thus a core component of the project ‘Strengthening the development potential of the EU mobility partnership in Georgia through targeted circular migration and diaspora mobilisation’.

Purpose of this pilot circular migration scheme is to generate evidence for the future development-oriented management of labour migration. Basic assumption is that such mobility of people between countries can have a triple win outcome: equally benefiting migrants (1), countries of origin (2) and of destination (3), including the respective societies and individuals.

Through this action, Georgian migrants enhance their skills while working in Germany and improve their employability after their return to Georgia.

The pilot project is implemented by the partner organizations: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Public Service Development Agency (PSDA) and the Georgian Small and Medium Enterprises Association (GSMEA). The pilot project is conducted on behalf of the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
