On 19 June ISET hosted Jacques Fleury, formerly the CEO of GGMW and currently the CEO of GWS and Director of JSC Château Mukhrani. The format of the meeting was very different from the typical seminars conducted at ISET. Mr. Fleury provided insights into doing business in Georgia since 1997, when he was asked to become the CEO and increase the value of one of Georgia’s most famous intangible assets – the popularity of the mineral water from the springs of the Borjomi valley.

When Fleury joined the company GGMW was nearly out of money and he was told that the company would need to raise at least $3 million to cover the necessary investments.

On May 1, 2013, Professor Eberhard Feess of the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, held a seminar at ISET on Competition Policy. The presentation covered theoretical and applied aspects of competition policy and its relevance to Georgia.

On March 4, 2013 Andrew Burns, Manager of Global Macroeconomics in the Development Prospects Group of the World Bank, presented a report - “Global Economic Prospects – Assuring Growth Over Medium Term”, for ISETers. The World Bank's twice-yearly Global Economic Prospects report looks at global growth trends and examines the way those trends affect developing countries. The report includes three-year forecasts for the global economy and long-term global scenarios which look ten years into the future.
