A Growing Partnership:
US-Georgian Trade and Investment Opportunities
Address: 50 Milk St., Boston, MA 02109
Lighthouse West, 20th Floor
Presentations and Discussion: 3-5 pm
Georgian Wine Reception: 5-7 pm
Georgia is located in the area of great interest to many of the United States’ most challenging adversaries — China, Iran, and of course, its immediate neighbor, Russia. The interests of global powers in Georgia is mostly determined by its location and available infrastructure, which ensures access to the “heartland of Eurasia” and to the hydrocarbon resources of the Caspian basin.
The United States, more than any other country in the world, has tangible incentives to work closely with Georgia. For over two decades Georgia and the United States have been consistently reliable strategic partners that have contributed mightily to each other’s national security.
Georgia’s military has participated in every military campaign of the United States since 2003, and this small nation with population of only 3.7 million became one of the largest contributors of troops to coalition forces first in Iraq, and then in Afghanistan.
Our speakers and guests will discuss different investment and trade opportunities between Georgia and the United States.
