A new Country Partnership Strategy for Georgia outlines a World Bank Group program of support for the country over the period 2014-2017. The strategy, which has been developed in consultation with government officials, civil society organizations, development partners and other stakeholders, identifies key areas where World Bank Group assistance can have the biggest impact on poverty reduction and is designed to promote collaboration and coordination among development partners in the country.
The proposed engagement will focus on two key areas: 1) strengthening public service delivery to promote inclusion and equity, and 2) enabling job creation and competitiveness to enable private sector led inclusive growth.
These two areas of focus work towards greater inclusion from different perspectives. The first area targets inclusion through the effective use of public resources and the second targets inclusion through growth of income opportunities.
