Why Georgia Matters
HE Mikheil Saakashvili, President of Georgia
Chair: Lord Wallace of Saltaire
Recent years have shown that events in Georgia can have repercussions for states far beyond the South Caucasus. Georgia is a pivotal point in Europe's security architecture, a key NATO partner, and an important transit state for diversification of energy supplies to Europe. The speaker will discuss Georgia's significance for its neighbours, the region, and the West.
