The DCFTA has been a cornerstone of economic relations between the EU and Georgia since 2014. In the same year, the German Economic Team started its activities in Georgia.
The Georgian economy is strongly oriented towards services, including an important tourism sector. However, there is also a small industrial sector and a large part of the labour force is still working in agriculture.
Georgia has experienced high growth rates in recent years, only temporarily interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. An attractive business environment makes Georgia an interesting option for foreign direct investment.
The focus of economic policy advice in Georgia is on foreign trade, agro-economics and macroeconomic issues.
