Coordination Meeting on Migration Projects
8th coordination meeting of the projects running in the field of migration was held at Tbilisi Marriott Hotel on 17th February 2017, organized by the Secretariat of the State Commission on Migration Issues (SCMI). The meeting gathered member agencies of the SCMI, and international and local non-governmental organizations working in the field of migration. The event was held in a new format enabling presenters to brief the audience on ongoing activities along with the new initiatives planned.
In order to ensure the effective coordination of the information campaign on visa-free travel for Georgian citizens expected to be open by early summer, as well as envisaged by the 2016-2020 Migration Strategy Action Plan (2016-2017), the coordination meeting also aimed at sharing information on the relevant awareness raising activities planned by all involved actors.
Project Coordination Meetings are held twice a year organized by SCMI Secretariat in order to ensure concerted action in the field of migration and minimize the thematic overlaps and duplications. Based on the information provided by participants, the Secretariat updates the online project matrix.
