The greater context of travel limitations severely impacted Georgian tourism and overall disruptions in supply chains affected several industries in Georgia and other countries.  The speakers presented a potential model for reviving the Georgian economy and several key reforms which would make Georgia more economically stable in the future. The initial lectures were followed by a lively debate and exchange of ideas.
