"We have a good result in terms of international ratings and it is good, because ratings raise some interest, which is a precondition for investment attraction. Surely, no one will invest money in Georgia just because of the ratings, but these ratings rise investors’ interest. We are a small country and we need such results in order to focus and work further on investments", said Giorgi Pertaia, President of the Georgian Chamber of Commerce, commenting on Trace International's Corruption Perceptions Index, in which Georgia ranks as the 28th in Europe.

"I think it's a timely message, especially in the current context, when investors are making some changes due to the pandemic, thinking about certain shifts and searching reliable supply channels, as the pandemic disrupted many so-called reliable supply channels during the first wave.

Corruption is everywhere, but a study by Trace International shows comparisons between countries and Georgia has a good position in the world in terms of freedom from the risk of corruption. It is clear that the environment is politically hot and the opponents argue against it, but we must not forget that we are number one in the region in terms of investment environment and we must definitely use these results, "said Giorgi Pertaia, President of the Chamber of Commerce.
