On November 9, ISET hosted the presentation of the South Caucasus Regional Trade Study, which was carried out by Private Sector Development Research Center (PSDRC) through an SDC-funded project, “Facilitation of Trade in the South Caucasus”, implemented by the UNDP.

The study analyzed the integration of the South Caucasus countries into international markets, and how the strengthening of bilateral relations between Georgia and Armenia and Azerbaijan could contribute to the countries’ sustainable development, help to stimulate inclusive growth, overcome poverty and protect the environment.

The South Caucasus is a small but strategically important region at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. The region’s economies are deeply integrated into global markets through trade, capital and personal mobility, but have weaker intra-regional economic ties. The deepening integration of transport and energy infrastructure and intensive personal mobility are all factors pushing the countries of the region closer together, despite small intra-regional trade flows.

Based at the International School of Economics at Tbilisi State University (ISET), the ISET Policy Institute (ISET-PI) is one of the first university-based think tanks in the South Caucasus. ISET-PI complements the educational mission of ISET by delivering training, conducting research and analysis, expressing views on policy, and providing a professional platform for policy discussions and debates.

ISET-PI is seeking for a research assistant, preferably MA student in the last year of his/her studies or a recent graduate.
