US Department of State: Georgian Police fulfilled their duty to maintain order even in cases of unannounced protests

“Generally, police have fulfilled their duty to maintain order even in cases of unannounced protests,” said the US Department of State in its recent report.

“Violent street protests are uncommon, but there were significant clashes in June 2019 when protesters attempted to enter Parliament. Hundreds were injured, including some who suffered severe eye injuries due to police use of rubber bullets,” reads the report.

The US Department of State has released a report ‘2020 Investment Climate Statements.’ The report provides country-specific information on the business climates of more than 170 countries, including Georgia.

As the report claims, “despite the remaining challenges, Georgia ranks high in the region as a good place to do business. Moreover, Georgia ranks seventh in the 2020 World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business index and twelfth in the Heritage Foundation’s 2020 Economic Freedom Index.”
