Though Georgia is not apart of the European Union it has enacted many European pieces of legislation while keeping its own local laws to boost its financial sectors and prevent onerous bureaucracy and red-tape. This has given the banking and financial industries the credibility needed to be accepted in places like Europe while still maintaining its desired degree of financial regulatory freedom.
Georgia has enacted strict banking privacy laws which boasts a record of never having been breached. Thankfully there is still access to confidential banking in respected jurisdictions and luckily, Georgia is one of them.
