Georgia is a Western Asian country which has introduced significant, effective reforms in the past ten years. Its location on the Silk Road and the Black Sea has made it a prime place for international trade throughout the years. Agriculture and tourism are mainstays of the modern economy. The name of Georgia may have actually come from the Greek term for tiller of the earth; agriculturalist.
