The article discusses the economic aspects of the EU-Georgia Association Agreement in light of economic globalization. The Association Agreement, including Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), is an important mechanism to achieve deeper political-economic integration with the EU. However, it is clear from the current dynamics of the EU-Georgia economic relations that at this stage the impact of the Association Agreement on Georgia's trade relations and the country's investment attractiveness is not significant, which indicates a necessity of intensification of European Integration reforms.
