Georgia growing hub for information and communication technology

Thursday, November 10
Georgia is taking actions to establish itself as a growing hub for information and communication technology.

For this purpose the country participated at the global conference where the Irish and Central European based technology companies learnt about Georgia’s favourable business and investment environment.

This week, the Embassy of Georgia to Ireland participated at the Central European Technology Conference organised by the Irish Chamber of Commerce in Central Europe (i-Cham CE) and by the Enterprise Ireland.

The event brought together Irish and Central European-based technology companies, including Google and LinkedIn with a view to developing new cross-border business relationships and partnerships.

At the conference Georgia's charge d'affaires to Ireland Giorgi Zurabashvili made a speech where he highlighted the latest developments of the country’s business and investment environment.

He talked about the reforms the Government of Georgia made in the country’s information and communication industry which created additional benefits for the companies willing to operate in Georgia’s IT sector.

Zurabashvili also talked about the State Program on Broadband Infrastructure Development in Georgia that ensured creating the fiber-optic Internet network in more than 2,000 cities and villages in the country.

He said the Government of Georgia revealed it wanted to provide the entire country with high-speed Internet, and launched the High Speed Internet for Everyone project in January 2015.

In his words the Government of Georgia was aiming to build the innovation-based economy in Georgia. (
