Tuesday, April 01, 2014

Chairs of the Commercial Law and Tax Committee, Andrew Coxshall, Robin McCone, Ted Jonas and Lasha Gogiberidze and the Executive Director of AmCham Amy Denman met with Irakli Gvaramadze, Head of the Georgian Revenue Service and his first two Deputies on April 1.

AmCham stressed that a clear and transparent tax system is a main driver to improve the business climate.
