Many analysts explain this fact with the approaching elections and therefore uncertainty among the investors. Georgia's statistical department reports that in the first half of 2012, Georgia received $488 million. This overall figure is more than in the same period of last year. However, the tendency shows a decrease of foreign investments in the second quarter. So far, according to the existing data, the biggest investors are: The Netherlands, USA, Azerbaijan, Luxemburg and Great Britain. The biggest investments this year came in the energy sector.
