After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Germany was one of the first states to recognise Georgian independence and support the construction of a new Georgian state. This support can still be seen today in German-Georgian relations through support in culture, science, education, sports and economy. After the restoration of Georgian independence, many citizens of Germany had the opportunity to learn and gain employment opportunities in this newly independent state. Most of them returned to Georgia to work in the country, however, they still have close ties with Germany. The Georgian Embassy contributes to the further strengthening of these ties promoting this cooperation.
