heal.abstract
According to GCI and EDB indexes Georgia is progressing transitional country with relatively free economy and attractive business environment. The evaluations made within both indexes show how the country developed its economic performance through last decade and transformed its economy from being week and corrupted with socialist heritage towardsbecomingdemocratic, free market principles based one. EDB underlines Georgia’s success in numerous reforms: police, public sector, institutions, taxation system, rules of starting business and registering property, fighting against criminal and corruption, etc. It shows that the country is #1 in the Black Sea region for having the least barriers for doing business. GCI index does not introduce the country as a top performer of business competitiveness. In this index Georgia takes just88thposition, out of 142 participants in this year. It shows us that the country still has to do a lot to develop its economy and reform institutions, infrastructure, macroeconomic situation, education, goods’, financial and labour markets, adopt the technology, increase the market size and make other changes in order to make its economy competitive and attractive for investment. It is crucial for Georgia to make the court independent from state, also, to protect the property rights, not to use the tax service as the tool of pressure on businessmen, to assure the internal and external political stability of the country for defending the investors, support agriculture, increase export and change the Labour Code from being discriminative towards the employees to more tolerant version. Herewith, the country should follow its latest choice of EU based long-run policy of economic development and transfer its institutions in accordance of European standards.
