Overview of best prospect sectors, major infrastructure projects, significant government procurements and business opportunities.
Georgia remains an attractive market among countries in the region. The government has increased its focus on developing the infrastructure, energy, tourism, and agriculture sectors and has received substantial support from international donors. Materials, expertise, and equipment, including medical equipment, for these sectors are in demand.
Construction of roads, energy distribution infrastructure, water systems, hotels, and office space is expanding across Georgia, presenting opportunities for producers of construction equipment and materials and providers of architectural and engineering services. Infrastructure is the second largest expenditure in the national budget.
Since consumers’ purchasing power is somewhat constrained, consumers are principally interested in processed foodstuffs, used automobiles, and aftermarket accessories. The food processing industry holds particular opportunities given Georgia’s agricultural potential. Agricultural machinery and processing lines are in demand.
Information technology, systems, and software are needed to support new business growth.
International organizations and foreign governments have procurement needs that can be filled by U.S. exporters. These agencies include but are not limited to the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), and USAID.
