Twinning is a joint implementation tool of cooperation between public administrations of an EU Member State and a Beneficiary Country. Twinning is used to support the neighbor countries to harmonize their regulations with the EU standards through training, reorganization as well as drafting and applying of laws and regulations.

This program exists over ten years and has been successfully implemented in the East European countries, who later became members of EU. The program appeared to be an effective instrument on the way of integration with EU. Twinning as a basis for more intensive political-cultural relationships and stronger economic integration of the Beneficiary Countries, it also supports stability, democracy and welfare.

The said project with its partners Georgian National Museum and Stiftung Preusischer Kulturbesitz with the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin has been the first Twinning project in the cultural field. Therefore, much attention (nationally as well as internationally) was attached to the successful implementation of this project, as it could be an indicator of future direction of the Twinning Strategy. Top German experts working on the development of the Museum Island and the reunification of the collections after the reunion of Germany have been involved in the project, supporting Georgian colleagues with their experience-based consulting. Based on the reports in the Georgian and German media about the Twinning project and the achieved results, the said project managed to meet the expectations of national, as well as international audience.

The main goal of the project was to strengthen the Georgian National Museum as an institution, assist the introduction of the best practices in the museum activities – particularly in the fields of building planning, collection removal, restoration and conservation of objects, museum management, etc. The Oriental Collection removal has been a pilot case within the framework of the project, which was implemented in several phases.  At Sh. Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts of  Georgian National Museum, conservation and removal program was prepared for the Oriental collections. This case should serve as a guideline for future collection removal procedures at GNM.  The results are  presented together with the masterpieces of the collection at the exhibition “New Life to the Oriental Collection”. The exhibition opening took place on September 17, at 5:30 p.m. at the exhibition hall of Georgian National Museum.
