“I believe that fundamental needs of the business community do not change with the political cycle. AmCham should always be an advocate of things like stability and a strong pro-business environment that enables us to want to re-invest and to tell our friends to do the same. We are a critical part in the country’s development and of forming the world’s view of Georgia as a place to invest,” said Amcham President Sarah Williamson at the elections.
AmCham would like to thank all members for taking part in this important democratic process.
