Millennium Challenge Georgia
The key goal of Millennium Challenge Georgia Program is to reduce poverty through economic growth. This program is administered by the Millennium Challenge Corporation, which was developed by the Government of the United States to provide aid to countries in transition.
In 2004, Georgia was nominated among 16 countries viewed as potential recipients of the funding. Each of these countries met 16 criteria, three of which were major ones: ruling justly, investing in people and economic freedom. The two priorities of the Government of Georgia outlined were: Infrastructure Rehabilitation and Enterprise Development.
