Proposals for Strengthening Political, Economic and Cultural Ties Between the State of Georgia and Georgia (the Country)


The country of Georgia is a beautiful country located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, but most U.S. Georgians know as much about the country that shares a name with our beloved State as they do about some of its bordering countries, such as Azerbaijan and Armenia. However, the country of Georgia also borders Russia, Turkey and the Black Sea, making its position on the map extremely important.

Despite its pure beauty and fascinating culture, the country of Georgia is not without its fair share of issues. The trouble spots, however, represent opportunities for the State of Georgia to assist and influence the country of Georgia in a mutually beneficial manner. This memorandum sets forth concrete recommendations in ten topic areas for the leaders of the State of Georgia to consider in order to develop a direct relationship with the country of Georgia that will further the interests of both sides, as well as those of the United States of America and western society as a whole.
