Georgian govt creates a website for South African Boers

In Fall, 2010 Georgian government announced that it was planning to invite South African Boers to move their businesses to Georgia.

There are approximately 40,000 Boers, mainly of Dutch decent living in South Africa who fear that the local government will oppress them by implementing new agricultural policies. Georgia, on the other hand, has huge agricultural resources that need to be used. Georgian government thinks that it would be a great opportunity if Boers would move to Caucasus and bring their knowledge of modern farming.
