On January 28, 2009, the Emerging Markets Club held its first event of 2009: Georgia – A New Country with New Opportunities.  The event was opened by Emerging Markets Club President, Alexander Hang, who then turned the event over to the Embassador of Georgia to Spain, the Honorable Mr. Zurab Pololikashvili. Mr. Pololikashvili expressed his pleasure with the interest shown in Georgia at the IE community and introduced the two guest speakers on Georgia, Ms. Natalia Kasradze, Director of Georgia National Investment Agency, and Beka Jakeli, Deputy Chairman of the Georgia Department of Tourism and Resorts.
