EU4BUSINESS IN GEORGIA

SMEs play a significant role in Georgia’s economy, accounting for over 40% of employment, but are still struggling to scale up their operations. EU4Business supports the government's ambitious plan to reform and improve the business environment. Its programmes boost SME growth by improving their access to finance and new markets as well as targeting women entrepreneurs and projects in green energy. SMEs looking to make the most of Georgia’s Free Trade Agreement with the EU can also get financial and technical help to adapt to EU standards and to move into foreign markets.
