Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze and Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades have discussed possibilities for circular migration and agreed to take steps to provide benefits for migrant workers during the historic visit of the President of Cyprus in Georgia.

Circular migration is a repetitive or a temporary movement of a migrant worker between the homeland and a host country for employment purposes.

Further strengthening of people-to-people relations, tourism and economic relations were top issues of the meeting,” the Prime Minister’s press office reported.

Bakhtadze said that the Georgian people is grateful for the support of the government of Cyprus for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Anastasiades has also met with the Georgian President earlier today.
