Article
The article talks about small and medium-sized business and its importance in the development of the economy. Small and medium-sized enterprises play an important role in the economies of most countries, especially developing countries. Small and medium-sized companies are a major part of world businesses and make a huge contribution to job creation and the development of the global economy. They account for about 90% of world production, 60% -70% of jobs and 55% of GDP. In developing economies, small and medium-sized businesses provide almost 40% of national income. They are a necessary and integral part of the economic system of any developed country, the improper development of which hinders the normal existence and development of the economy and society. Development of the country in the XXI century is unimaginable without commerce, manufacturing, financial institutions and modern infrastructures. Small and medium business is a field that creates products, provides services to customers, is the creator and implementer of innovations and the latest technologies in any field, creates jobs and the middle-income layer of the society, fills the budget, attracts foreign capital and investments, which in itself strengthens the exchange rate, promotes healthy competition, the existence of free markets, naturally opposes the establishment of monopolies, creates a stable socio-economic environment in the country, raises the image of the country at the international level. It is for these numerous reasons that small and medium-sized businesses not only make a significant contribution to the economy, but also emerge as an economy. The world experience of many countries in the market economy system shows that small and medium-sized businesses can play one of the most important roles in solving the national problems in the countries. By 2030, 600 million jobs will be needed worldwide to meet the growing demand for employment, prompting governments to promote small and medium-sized businesses. Keywords: business; Small and medium business; Small and medium enterprises; Employment; Importance in economic development.

ABSTRACT Paper encompasses a wide range and informative materials to demonstrate that for the improvement of the economic and social state of transitional countries institutional reforms has great importance because successful institutional reforms encourage investment flow. The only way to overcome unemployment and poverty is significant economic growth that can be achieved b the implementation of institutional reforms and increase of investment activity. From this point of view the possibilities from local funds in transitional countries, particularly in Georgia, are small. That is why the main priority is to attract foreign investments. But these actions are based on important institutional changes. Paper gives a clear picture of Georgian economy and fields where foreign direct investments are made to illustrate how institutional reforms can create attractive business environment and support to economic growth. Paper overviews the reasons of making investments in Georgia, main tendencies of FDI to Georgia. Paper emphasizes the following reasons why Georgia remains the attractive country for foreign investors: adequate institutional reforms and free market oriented economic policy, attractive macroeconomic environment, competitive trade regulations, liberal tax code, aggressive privatization policy, modernized business licensing system, adequate technical regulation system, strategic geographic location, competitive and dynamic banking sector, a country of ancient culture and traditions, milestones in Georgia's transformation to a market economy, diverse investments sectors. Paper argues that despite the current global financial crises and Russian –Georgia War in 2008 Georgia remains attractive place for investments because of successfully implemented institutional reforms.

Economic stability and peace are the important determinants of socioeconomic development in the modern world. Analysis of the situation in conflicting regions worldwide clarifies that at the modern stage it is very complicated to reach this. One of the main factors, which cause the process of economic and political destabilization, is global terrorism, which became the world's important phenomenon. After the terrorist act of 11 September in the USA in 2001 and terrorist act on the journal "Charlie Hebdo" in Paris in 2015 the problem became more actual. Compared with 2013, in 2014 the world terrorism threat increased up to 61%, which considerably limits dynamic development of the global market. In such countries, where threat of terrorism is high, it becomes far difficult to develop the international trade relations, inflow of foreign investments reduces, and the danger of starting business is high. Within this context, the main principles of market formation are determined not by the supply-demand phenomenon, but the main source of its destabilization is the fear caused in result of terrorism. In result of we receive atrophied market relations, when separate states possess relevant resources and economic potential for economic development, but in result of interference of exogamic forces (terrorism) it is impossible to perfectly master them and, owing to this, dynamic development of the economic system. In the present article we studied the socio-political aspects of terrorism and its influence on the global business.
