AmCham Delegation heads to the US capital to meet Senior Policy makers

Thursday, November 7
The President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Georgia Sarah Williamson will lead a delegation to Washington D.C. from November 12-14. The goal of the visit is to meet key opinion and policy makers and provide them with candid, in-depth information on the current economic and democratic processes in Georgia.

Along with Ms. Williamson, other delegation members include AmCham member company senior representatives and CEOs including: Andrew Coxshall, KPMG; Neil Dunn, BP; Nino Suknidze, DLA Piper; Cliff Isaak, BDO, and George Chirakadze, Business Association of Georgia. The delegation has confirmed meetings, forums and roundtable discussions with Congressmen, Senatorial offices and professional foreign relations committee staff from both the Democratic and Republican parties.

Panel discussions, presentations and meetings are confirmed with Brookings Institute, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the Atlantic Council. Many of the delegation will also meet the media to exchange information on a range of economic and business interests one year out from last October’s Parliamentary elections.

Topics of discussion will revolve around promotion of FDI, energy security, regional trade and transportation, macro-economic indicators, rule of law and the judiciary, and other relevant topics related to the economy and investment.

AmCham feels that, since the Parliamentary elections one year ago, conflicting messages are coming out about Georgia. This visit to D.C. is an effort to engage in an honest and open dialogue about important timely issues affecting the business community. (American Chamber of Commerce in Georgia)
