The legal base of the Tajik-Georgian relations includes the Protocol on Establishing Diplomatic Relations and the two interagency agreements on inter-state calculations and on cooperation in the field of construction. More than a dozen drafts are under consideration of both parties.

The main imported goods from Georgia to Tajikistan are foodstuff, medicine, wood, electrical equipment and furniture.

Economic cooperation of the Republic of Tajikistan and Georgia at the present stage is clearly stated in the joint implementation of the Program of the European Union «TRACECA», aimed at the development of the Transport Corridor Europe-Caucasus-Asia. The importance of participation of Tajikistan in this program is that it can open access for Tajikistan to the Trans-European and Trans-Asian Transport Networks of Caucasus and Central Asian countries.
