According to the World Bank, Georgia is a small transition economy with a population of about 4.5 million people and a gross national income (GNI) per capita of US$1,560. Its location on the “Silk Road” between Europe and Asia has made it a transit conduit for goods being shipped through the Caucasus, and geographical features such as Georgia’s Black Sea coast, mountains, and rich cultural history offer strong tourist potential. Other attributes include an educated labor force, widespread land ownership, and a long tradition of entrepreneurship. Fertile land and a favorable climate enable diverse agricultural production, including a range of fruits and vegetables, livestock, dairy products, nuts, and tea. The country has a long history of viticulture and some 500 varieties of grapes are cultivated. Recent investments in oil exploration have indicated significant oil and gas potential. Other physical resources include manganese, iron, coal, copper, gold, granite, limestone, marble, and mineral waters. Dense forests cover one third of the country and numerous fast-flowing rivers offer good hydropower potential.

This year Georgia entered the ranks of the top 25 most business friendly countries worldwide, according to the World Bank’s Doing Business 2008. Georgia is ranked 18th out of 178 economies rated by the Doing Business report, a 19 position increase compared to last year. Georgia has been among the top ten reforming countries for the last three years in a row.
