AmCham Georgia hosted reception at the beautiful outdoor space of Stamba Hotel. AmCham President Mr. Michael Cowgill greeted the guests and expressed our happiness at being able to safely meet again in person, after these difficult times.
American Chamber of Commerce in Georgia (AmCham) is the largest international business chamber in Georgia with up to 200 company members. Founded in 1998, AmCham's primary objective is to promote US - Georgia ties and the improvement of the business environment in Georgia. We do this by working with the government to help shape improvements in the business regulations, facilitating connections between Georgian and international investors and by supporting business and government links.
This is done in a range of ways. Through regular meetings we keep members in contact with senior officials in the government of Georgia, the US Embassy and each other.
The various AmCham Committees are vital tools in achieving this goal. The past year has seen the revival of AmCham’s ITT committee and the launch of three new committees: Commercial Law & Tax, Corporate Social Responsibility and Agribusiness. We plan to continue working to strengthen our committees and to create new ones with which we will be better equipped to raise awareness of issues affecting our members, to better promote our businesses and to strengthen sectorial awareness & cooperation.
This is a challenging time in Georgia but, as always, with challenges come the opportunities for even greater positive developments in the country and we feel that, working together, we will be able to help these happen.
