Abstract:

"The central challenge facing the government of Georgia today is the need to find sources of long-term economic growth, particularly through development of the private sector. Key to the dynamism of that sector is entrepreneurial activity, which generates new businesses and fosters competition and economic growth. Fostering Entrepreneurship in Georgia uses data and in-depth case studies to identify the determinants of high-growth entrepreneurial activity. It finds that, while a number of reforms have been undertaken to improve the business environment, a number of constraints to the growth of entrepreneurial and innovative activity remain. Based on these findings, the book outlines broad policy directions for improving the business environment, providing access to finance, developing skills, increasing access to markets, incentivizing firm-level research and development, and raising awareness, and it identifies priority areas for government action. The issues discussed in this book will be of particular interest to policy makers who are aiming to achieve higher growth and job creation through entrepreneurship, as well as to development practitioners and those in the private sector."--Page 4 of cover.
