In Tbilisi Again. I have just taken a long walk though the central parts of a sunny Tbilisi, capital of Georgia. There is activity most everywhere, not least in construction. Despite the conflict with Russia, investments, trade and growth have remained very high. Georgia almost didn′t notice the financial crisis.

Tbilisi is a place where history and tradition is very present. The architecture is peculiar, sometimes almost oriental. Many of the old houses are renovated now, and the city is beautiful indeed. But quite a lot remains. Old people dressed in black mix with the new urban young in trademark jeans.

I will give three lectures at an international conference of young politicians from countries all over the region. I will speak about the need for low taxes and a free labour market as well as talk about the causes and effects of the financial crisis. It all starts this afternoon. And of course there will be time to meet some good friends as well.
