Georgia lies on the coast of the Black Sea in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. The modern history of Georgia started with the declaration of independence from the Soviet Union on 9 April 1991, shortly before its collapse. Georgia is currently a democratic semi-presidential republic, with the President holding the position of head of state, and the Prime Minister as head of government. EU-Georgia bilateral relations are regulated by the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) which entered into force on 1 July 1999. The ENP Action Plan, endorsed by the EU-Georgia Cooperation Council of 14 November 2006, aims  to fulfil the provisions of the PCA and contribute to a closer relationship with Georgia, involving a significant degree of economic integration and deepening  of political co-operation. On 22 July 2013 in Brussels, the negotiations concerning the Eu-Georgia Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement were completed. Now the final text of the agreement is preparing for signing.

In 2012, the Gross Domestic Product of Georgia rose to EU 12 bil. The electronic communications sector acounted for EUR 468 mil., which is 3.9 % of the GDP. In Georgia, the Law on Electronic Communication was introduced in June 2005. The Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development is the governmental body responsible for the preparation and adoption of the national policy in the area of electronic communications, while the Georgian National Communications Commission (GNCC) is the independent NRA, which was established on 1 July 2000.
