Our devotion to continuous development brings tangible outcomes for the company. PMCG was founded in 2007 in Georgia, while in 2013 we established an office in Washington D.C., and last year we officially registered PMCG and PMC Research Center in Ukraine.

Our contribution in developing countries’ policies and their implementation of reforms has enabled thousands of people to enhance their wellbeing and overall quality of life. This has ranged from revenue generation in Africa to enhancing fiscal efficiency and regulatory frameworks in Europe and Central Asia. The success we have achieved has been driven by our dedication to blending our knowledge and international best practices, combined with tapping into local expertise in every nation in which we work. Our complex approach ensures that the policies we put together are carefully designed and ideally suited to overcome obstacles and grasp opportunities presented.
