Doing Business & Investment Environment

Between 2004 and 2012, Reformatics’ experts co-ordinated and implemented a series of liberal economic and institutional reforms in Georgia which turned the country from a failed state into a modern country with a resilient, vibrant and growing economy. 
Thanks to these policies and efforts, Georgia’s ranking in the World Bank’s “Doing Business” Report rocketed from 112th place in 2005 to 8th place in 2014. According to the World Bank, Georgia has demonstrated the most rapid and far-reaching progress worldwide, and is the first developing country in the world to break into the top 10 economies in terms of ease of doing business.
