The regional economic director of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in the Caucasus focused on the positive economic dynamics in Georgia. The country has a lot to do in this direction, and the Investors Council has a large expert resource. We will gladly help the country in any way we can. I think that the current economic growth rate of Georgia is remarkable. It is interesting to see the number of companies that want to open or move a business in Georgia. Many local companies are also thinking about expanding. “This is a general trend in the country, and we are very happy about it,” said Katarina Bjorlin Hansen.

According to the Ambassador of the United Kingdom, a very useful discussion took place at  meeting of the Investors’ Council.

“I took part in a beneficial and lively discussion, which was chaired by the Prime Minister of Georgia and with the participation of members of the government at today’s meeting of the Investors’ Council. The United Kingdom is proud to support this forum through a partnership with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. It is important that businesses and entities operating in Georgia have the opportunity to discuss issues that are relevant to them directly with the government. This meeting is just an iceberg, and below is a huge amount of work being done in the format of separate workshops, and each of them aims to support Georgia in ensuring economic growth, further prosperity and progress on the path to Euro-Atlantic integration,” said Mark Clayton.
