Georgia and ADB

In the Spotlight

Located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Georgia has become an important node for regional trade flows. The Government of Georgia has taken steps to deregulate the economy, streamline bureaucracy, and combat corruption. Committed to a more inclusive growth process, the government has considerably increased social sector funding and made public expenditure transparent. Yet, despite solid economic growth, poverty and unemployment continue to impede Georgia’s development.

The key development priorities of ADB in Georgia are to foster inclusive and sustainable economic growth, accelerate poverty reduction, and enhance regional connectivity. Priority sectors include transport, water supply and sanitation, energy, public sector management, and finance.

In October 2016, Georgia became the 11th member of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC).
