On January 17-19, a United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia (UN ESCAP) delegation from Bangkok visited Georgia.
The visit sought to provide consultation on statistics about persons with limited abilities. Georgia is the 10th country in the world, and first in the region, to engage in this process.
In 2016, the Government of Georgia expressed its willingness to participate in the project. To this end, the Human Rights Secretariat at the Administration of the Government of Georgia commenced drafting a relevant questionnaire based on the goals and objectives of the Incheon Strategy. The Government of Georgia plans to finalize and submit the questionnaire before the end of this month.
During the visit, the delegation held meetings with representatives of state institutions, the Office of Ombudsman, and international and local organizations. A new format was defined for deeper cooperation in the future.
