Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises lead the World Economy

The United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution recognising the crucial role Micro-, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) play in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and declared 27th of June the day for MSMEs Celebration. 

Since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, all member countries have been striving to implement the agenda and ensuring to contribute as much as they can. MSMEs are the backbone of most economies worldwide and play a key role in developing countries. According to International Council for Small Business, MSMEs make up over 90% of all firms and account on average for 60-70% of total employment and 50% of GDP.

Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises have the potential to make a long-lasting positive impact on global development needs, since they are the engine for economic growth and job creation, accounting for two out of three net new jobs created worldwide. Since Agile Precis Ventures acknowledges the importance of MSMEs, we offer a wide variety of services customised to your specific needs and goals! In addition to our vast knowledge and experience, the Co-Founder & Stakeholder Relations Officer of Agile Precis Inc. Dillon Franks is a proud member of The International Council for Small Business. 

May - World Trade Month

Every year during May we celebrate World Trade Month. It highlights the opportunities trade brings to companies, countries and the world economy, celebrates companies that export goods/services around the world and educated the public on the importance of global trade. 

The mission of Agile Precis Ventures is to provide the citizens of the World with meaningful employment through sustainable and growing Small and Medium Sized Enterprises. Working with businesses to provide expertise, education, operational systems, sales and marketing, finance opportunities that will help them become the members and participants of the world trade. 

One of our main priorities at this point is Georgia - located between Europe and Asia on a historical “Silk Road”, the economy of Georgia is highly integrated with international markets.

Georgia’s liberal trade regimes provide investors with a favourable opportunity to not only access the country’s 3.7 m residents, but the wider region’s markets, as a direct result of the absence of customs and import tariffs. Georgia has a Generalised System of Preferences with the US.

Financial Literacy Month

April marks the beginning of Financial Literacy Month in the United States. Since 2004, Financial Literacy Month has designated April as a period to promote and refine the pecuniary analysis and decision making abilities of the American people. While Financial Literacy Month was originally conceived as a government initiative to fortify the monetary choices of everyday citizens, this event has been well received and heavily promoted by various communities in the private sector.

At Agile Precis Ventures, we believe that Financial Literacy Month touches the very soul of our group’s mission. Through our business coaching, consulting expertise, and access to advanced pedagogical technologies, expanding the financial comprehension of our clients is at the core of APV.

6th Millionth Tourist Surprise in Georgia!

Over the past decade, Georgia has had increased flow of visitors and tourists to the country. International arrivals increased by 7.6% in 2016 (compared to 2015) adding up to 6,350,825 people.

On March 10th, Georgian National Tourism Administration decided to welcome the 6 millionth visitor into its borders with exceptional style. Jesper Black, a visitor from the Netherlands arrived in Tbilisi International Airport and was invited to  dine with Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili. At the dinner personally hosted by Prime Minister Kvirikashvili, the Dutch national was introduced to Georgian cuisine, culture, and history.

The steadily increasing number of tourists traveling to Georgia is indicative of Georgia’s economic and societal growth. The rise of inbound tourists has paralleled the consistent increase in Georgian GDP. Much of this expansion has come as a result of small and medium size business growth by Georgian entrepreneurs.  

Agile Precis Ventures is currently positioning itself to accelerate the growth of the Georgian economy by providing business consulting as well as educational and software support to Georgian startups. Through our own software as well as our partner’s innovations such as IBM’s Watson, we are prepared to provide Georgian entrepreneurs the resources they need to succeed in the marketplace.

Georgian Viticulture: An 5000-Year-Old Tradition

Since roughly 5000 B.C., the people inhabiting the country of Georgia have practiced fermenting the many grape varieties native to South Caucasus. Noted for their extensive array of forms and cultivation, Georgian wines have long been considered some of the most exquisite in Asia, if not the world. As a result of the Cold War, as well as French and American wine production, Georgian wine has faced many obstacles to reaching Western consumer markets. However, these challenges have not hampered the impressive sophistication and taste that imbibers experience when tasting a glass of Tvishi or Mukuzani.

From its humble origins in clay pots buried under the earth of the scenic Caucus Mountains, Georgian viticulture has grown tremendously over the past few decades.

Today, Georgian wine is poised to emerge onto the international market. The Georgian economy has become increasingly integrated with the European Union and other neighboring nations. With Georgia’s rising role in the world economy, it is expected that the wine produced within its borders is finding a wider audience with international consumers.

To oenophiles in the US, Georgian wine can be hard to find.  If you know of a good store where they are offered, let us know and we will pass the word around.  We at Agile Precis Ventures are excited to take a part in this expansion of a signature Georgian product.

Through developing SME’s, Agile Precis Ventures will fuel innovation and job growth in Georgia and throughout the developing world.
