Situation improving

Georgia (pop. 4,371,000; GDP/cap US$986) is in the eastern coast of the Black Sea bordered on the north by Russia and on the south by Turkey, Armenia, and Azerbaijan.

The Rose Revolution in 2003, spurred by rampant corruption, led the incumbent president Eduard Shevardnadze to resign from his post, which he had held since 1995. After his resignation, Mikheil Saakashvili won the presidential election held on January 2004. However, in May 2004, a second revolution took place in Ajaria, an autonomous region of Georgia, and led to the removal of Ajaria’s corrupt dictator, Aslan Abashidze.

Progress on market reforms and democratization has been made, but progress has been complicated by civil conflicts in the breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which remain outside the control of the central government and are ruled by de facto, unrecognized governments, supported by Russia.
