Situated at the strategically important crossroads where Europe meets Asia, Georgia has a unique and ancient cultural heritage, and is famed for its traditions of hospitality and cuisine.

Georgia’s strong record of economic reforms and improved living standards is being threatened by the impact of COVID-19. Poverty declined from 30 percent in 2005 to 14 percent in 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic will reverse some of these past gains. The country is expected to slip into a deep recession in 2020, with severe job and income losses which could push poverty up by 2.8 percentage points (World Bank).
