PM Presents Georgia at World Economic Forum
Author: Nino Sharashidze
Georgian political scientists and economists are expecting the Georgian delegation in Davos, headed by Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili to attract a number of foreign investments. This is what the PM promised before his departure to Switzerland.
“Georgia has many opportunities at the World Economic Forum this year, but it depends how the government presents all the advantages of investing in Georgia,” Ketevan Krialashvili, CEO and Founder at the Economic Education and Strategic Research Center, told Georgia Today.
Krialashvili believes that if the Georgian government develops Free Industrial Zones and local infrastructure, the country will become more attractive for foreign investors.
In the framework of the Davos World Economic Forum, the PM held meetings with leading ICT company leaders who agreed that working groups from these companies will visit Georgia in the near future to study the Country’s potential on the spot.
However, it was difficult to reach an agreement with leading companies, despite the fact that after signing the Association Agreement with the European Union Georgia has gained access to the internal Market of the EU, which currently unites 28 countries and over 500 million consumers.
