Georgia is a small country with less than 4 million inhabitants located between the Black Sea and the Caucasus mountain range. For more than a decade now, Georgia has been engaged in major economic and political reforms. These reforms focused on tackling poverty and modernizing the institutional, legal and economic framework, closer to European standards.
However, the country faces a challenging geostrategic environment and is largely impacted by the consequences of the 2008 war with Russia, regular conflicts between Armenia and Azerbaijan and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Georgia also suffers from a number of socioeconomic weaknesses while being particularly vulnerable to climate change.
The country consequently needs to find the resources to achieve economic stability. Georgia’s touristic and agricultural potential is large. It has a strategic position on the commercial routes linking Asia and Europe.
AFD has opened a representative office in Tbilisi in 2017. Our projects focus on urban and rural development, infrastructures, governance and renewable energy. AFD supports the country via sovereign and non-sovereign loans and grants from the Neighbourhood Investment Platform – East of the European Union.
AFD's activities and operations in Georgia are directly attached to the Eurasia regional office based in Istanbul, Turkey.
