Based on the analysis of trade and policy reforms undertaken towards greater facilitation of trade and harmonization of rules, the paper evaluates the "thickness" of borders at the current stage of Georgia-EU cooperation. The study is focused on the trade component of the formal cooperation agreements between Georgia and EU. Trade flows as well as policy reforms are analyzed in order to evaluate how the significance of borders has changed. It reviews the steps taken by both parties to overcome national borders and create larger economic space for trade. (original abstract)
