A statement released today by Tbilisi City Hall noted the Mayor of Jerusalem was interested in Georgia’s tourism and medical sectors.

I visited Israel to attract investments and implement specific projects, to establish cooperation in the sphere of tourism and to support the development of high-technologies. Tbilisi’s door is open for investors and I guarantee to support all projects and investors,” said Narmania.

Meanwhile president of the Israel-Georgia Chamber of Business Itsik Moshe said a new format of cooperation had started between the two countries and confirmed several multimillion dollar projects will be implemented in Georgia.

Today is the last day of Narmania’s three-day visit to Israel. During his trip Narmania held several meetings with the Mayor of Jerusalem and the business community that focused on deepening bilateral cooperation.
