Georgia

Georgia is a country in Eastern Europe. It is surrounded by The Caucasus Mountains, the Black Sea, Russia, Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The country's capital and largest city is Tbilisi. Georgia's territory covers 69,700 sq km, and its population was 3.75 million in 2015. The official language is Georgian but Russian, Armenian and Azeri are also among the spoken languages. 83.9% of the population is Orthodox Christian and 10% follow the Muslim religion.

Georgia is a unitary, semi-presidential republic, with the government elected through a representative democracy.

Georgia's GDP was USD 16.53 billion in 2014 (source: World Bank). The signing of the Association Agreement with the European Union (EU) in June 2014 and the coming into effect of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) in September 2014 are landmark achievements for Georgia resulting in greater policy certainty and business and consumer confidence.
