USACC sponsored event will present insights into doing business in Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, all countries that have topped the list of emerging markets with ambitious projects and reforms over the past decade.

Azerbaijan is undergoing a fast transition from a purely oil-based economy to one which encompasses information and technology, industry, agriculture, tourism and much more. The Republic of Azerbaijan is actively developing economic policies to successfully transit into market economy and integrate into the global economy.

Pro-business legislation and labor flexibility in Georgia have contributed to trade liberalization and a significant growth in local production and exports. Georgia rose from 112th to 9th place in the World Bank's "Ease of Doing Business" rank, and Doing Business Reformer Club awarded Georgia as "Top Reformer".

At the crossroads of Europe and the Middle East, Turkey has become a highly industrialized nation and is a key player in the global economy with a rapidly expanding economy which continues to attract the attention of a variety of international companies.

Join USACC to learn more about the regional opportunities in these countries.

NOTE: This breakout session is free of charge and open to both USACC members and non-members. To attend Embassy Night 2014 annual reception, please follow the link.
