EPI Report: Leasing Development in Georgia

The purpose of this report is to provide recommended actions that the Government of Georgia and the private sector can undertake with the support of international donors and agencies to grow capital formation and access to financing by furthering the use of financial leasing. These actions are recommended as three steps, including:

  • Amendments to Civil, Tax and Banking Laws in Georgia to address current shortcomings while enacting a comprehensive Leasing Law, based on international best practices;
  • Capacity building by providing expertise and applied knowledge to private sector players and government officials to apply the law and practices in order to achieve the objectives of sustainable capital formation and access to financing, within a framework of furthering foreign investment in Georgia; and
  • Business development, by bringing relevant international players, such as equipment vendors and international financial institutions to provide equipment and funding to Georgia through their interaction and undertakings with Georgian leasing players.
