The Georgia Investment Forum will provide an independent platform for senior Georgian officials from the finance, economic and investment block, as well as top executives from leading corporates to come together and meet with over 100 of the City of London’s most influential emerging markets fund managers, investment bankers and advisors and a cross-section of stakeholders from London’s financial community, not to mention a wide range of present and potential strategic investors.
Georgia’s economy is enjoying a robust recovery from the global pandemic with output growth and strong export performance, resulting in a decline in the fiscal deficit and government debt. The recent IMF Stand-By Arrangement focuses on strengthening the fiscal framework, maintaining macroeconomic stability and fostering growth, while countering inflationary risks.
The LSE-listed Georgian entities continue to show strong performances and prove popular amongst institutional investors, as have international bond issuances. Levels of FDI are up in the country, with increased growth and interest in such sectors as Renewables, Agribusiness, Advanced Manufacturing and Electronics, Logistics and Distribution, Real Estate, Tourism and Hospitality, FinTech and eCommerce, IT and BPO.
