The OECD Investment Policy Review of Georgia uses the OECD Policy Framework for Investment to present an assessment of the investment climate in Georgia and to discuss the challenges and opportunities the Georgian government faces in its reform efforts. Chapters cover trends and impact of foreign direct investment (FDI), the legal and regulatory framework for investment, promoting sustainable investment in the agri-food value chain, investment promotion and facilitation, and policies to promote and enable responsible business conduct.

The Review was prepared by the OECD Secretariat at the request of the Government of Georgia. It was carried out in close co-ordination with, and supported by, an inter-ministerial task-force established to discuss the Review in a whole-of-government approach. The task force was led by the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development. It has benefited from the peer review of the OECD Investment Committee and numerous stakeholder consultations.

The Review was prepared by a team led by Stephen Thomsen comprising Sarah Marion Dayan and Baxter Roberts of the OECD Investment Division, Mike Pfister of the Public Governance Directorate, Peline Atamer and Jibran Punthakey of the Global Relations Secretariat and Laure-Anne Courdesse, an external consultant. Comments and inputs were received from Alexandre de Crombrugghe, David Gaukrodger, Iris Mantovani, Fernando Mistura and Joachim Pohl of the Investment Division, Daniel Quadbeck and Bill Tompson from the Global Relations Secretariat and Frédéric Wehrlé of the Centre for Responsible Business Conduct. The review was prepared for publication by Edward Smiley.

The Review was supported by the EU4Business Initiative, benefitting from the financial assistance of the European Union.
