New video highlights OPIC’s work in Georgia
OPIC has played a key role in Georgia’s shift from an unstable past to a more prosperous and secure future. This new video highlights our work as one of the first development institutions to invest in Georgia after it declared independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.
Georgia faced major challenges in the early 1990s including an economic crisis, political instability, civil war, and aging and insufficient infrastructure. In the years since Georgia gained independence, OPIC has committed more than $500 million across more than 50 projects spanning a range of industries from agriculture to tourism to franchise chains. Today, OPIC supports more than 20 active projects in Georgia, which are helping to foster economic and political stability in this young nation.
