HISTORIC MOVE

As BP invests in a new project that extends Georgia’s role in transporting oil and gas to Europe, BP Magazine heads to the country to find out what this means for the future.

Situated at the crossroads of Asia and Europe, Georgia is set to broaden its vital role in the transportation of hydrocarbons from the resource-rich Caspian Sea to markets farther west. A $2 billion project with BP and its co-venturers is helping to secure the country’s place as an important business hub in the region, as well as strengthen its ties with partners beyond.

When Georgians greet one another in their native Kartuli language, they express far more than a simple hello. As they utter “Gamarjoba” to friends or strangers, they wish them victory.

在线观看的资源视频This single word reveals much about the nation’s history and its people’s resilience; it reflects centuries of turbulence across a territory that lies at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. The land has seen the rise and fall of empires, both ancient and modern. History books detail a long list of invaders and conquerors, who divided, annexed or dominated the kingdom.

Geography might be considered the root cause of Georgia’s struggles for many eras –bordered by four countries on three sides, with its west coast bounded by the Black Sea, intruders came from all angles. The 20th century proved to be no exception, with Georgia incorporated into the Soviet Union from 1921.

Nearly a quarter of a century after the fall of communism, an independent Georgia and its people have picked themselves up from the disarray of the Soviet collapse and are seizing the opportunities offered by their geographic location. Since 1999, Georgia has emerged as a crucial transit country for oil and gas from the resource-rich Caspian Sea.
