10.  Georgia - A Country of Ancient Culture and Traditions

 

Georgia is a bridge connecting several economic regions and is a particularly important transit country. Located at the crossroads of Europe and Central Asia, it serves as a natural transport corridor. Georgia is the shortest transit route between the West and Central Asia for transportation of oil and gas as well as dry cargo.

Reforms and initiatives, carried out by the Georgian Government since 2003, aiming at improving investment climate in the country, produced positive results as evidenced from international studies and evaluations:

 

  • The Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) in 2005 amounted to 449.8 ml. USD (499 ml. USD in 2004). The decline from the previous year was caused by the completion of Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline construction project, however non-pipeline investment increased by 44 ml. USD from 139 ml. USD in 2004 to 183 ml. USD. FDIs in 2006 amounted to 1,190 ml. USD (increased by 740.2 mln USD in comparison to 2005). FDIs In 2007 amounted 2 014.8 ml. USD (increased by 824 mln USD in comparison to 2006).  FDIs in 2008 amounted 1 564 mln USD (decreased by 450 mln USD in comparison to 2007). FDIs In 2009 amounted 658.4 ml. USD (decreased by 905.6 mln USD in comparison to same period 2008).

  • Foreign Direct Investments from EU member countries in 2006 amounted to 407.1 ml. USD (that on 163.4 ml. USD increase a parameter of the last year). Despite a nominal growth, however, the EU share in total investments sharply dropped in both annual and quarterly terms. This can be explained by the fact that the South Caucasus (Shah-Deniz) gas pipeline entered the final phase of its construction. In 2007 FDIs from EU member countries amounted to 1132.7 ml. USD (increased by 725.6 mln USD in comparison to 2006). In 2008 FDIs from EU member countries amounted to 476.6 ml. USD (decreased by 656.0 mln USD in comparison to 2007). In 2009 (preliminary data) FDIs from EU member countries amounted to 224.1 ml. USD (decreased by 252.5 mln USD in comparison to same period 2008).

 

  • The Foreign Direct Investments from EU member countries in 2010, January-September, (preliminary data) amounted to 302.5 mln.USD.
