Since September 2014 the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) entered into force between the EU and Georgia. Georgia is gradually implementing EU requirements in various areas identified in the agreement that brings Georgian regulations in line with the EU. One of the anticipated key benefits from the DCFTA, besides increased and diversified trade between the EU and Georgia, is increased FDI. This article briefly analyses foreign direct investment trends in Georgia before and after the entry into force of the DCFTA. The aim is to see whether the DCFTA has played the role of a game-changer in the first four years of DCFTA implementation.
