Georgia Defence and Security Conference (GDSC) came to an end. The Conference Summary was guided by Jill Dougherty, CNN foreign affairs correspondent, fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government Conversation with President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili and Prime Minister of Georgia Giorgi Kvirikashvili. President and Prime Minister focused on the regional security environment, Georgia`s strategic location, Euro-Atlantic membership aspirations and significance of economic development of the country. “The obvious focus was on NATO, but I think it was light broader – it was about Georgia’s role in the world, Georgia’s role in this regions and how it fits into Europe in the wider world. It was very interesting because I have come to Georgia many years, a lot of times but I had not been back to see the progress it has made and also the progress it has to be made – reforms and change. Georgia is obviously on the right track and it has the will to continue to do the right things to develop and become a modern country. They can truly have influence not only here but in the wider world”, outlined Jill Dougherty. State Minister on European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Georgia Davit Bakradze evaluated the conference: “This is the tenth conference led by Georgiaindicating to the consistent policy Georgia is pursuing in defence and security areas. Today, European and Euro-Atlantic security is practically unimaginable without Georgia`s participation. Georgia is contributing to this process by democratic development, modernization of army and by improving interoperability with NATO. The discussions were very interesting where we mainly focused on the concrete outcomes Georgia is expecting from the Warsaw Summit”. President of Georgian Institute for Strategic Studies Eka Tkeshelashvili also focused on the significance of the conference: “importance of GDSC is increasing throughout recent years. This year the number of participants has increased and themes of the debates were also very interesting mainly concerning regional and global security issues. I welcome that Georgia continues this tradition. This time when Georgia is facing serious security challenges and at the same time provides a huge contribution to strengthening international security, is hosting such an important event.” Minister thanked the conference participants and invited guests and closed the conference.
