Georgia is a country in the Caucasus region. Situated at the juncture of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, it is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the east by Azerbaijan. Georgia is in a highly strategic location in that it serves as an entry gate to the Caucasus and Central Asia. Transport corridors are breathing new life into the ancient trade route between east and west and could reinvigorate Georgian transportation.
