On May 4, 2023, AmCham Georgia joined nine of Georgia’s leading business associations in signing a statement of support for Georgia’s EU candidacy status.
Executive Director George Welton then joined a panel to discuss the importance of Georgia gaining candidate status. “It will be transformative,” he noted. “EU candidate status and the membership that it portends will stimulate investment, positive economic growth, greater employment, and integration into EU structures. The EU essentially underwrites political and judicial risk, making investments in EU states far safer.”
