Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia has met with Azerbaijani Economy Minister Mikayil Jabbarov earlier today to strengthen economic ties and to discuss the strategic partnership between Georgia and Azerbaijan.
Gakharia and Jabbarov discussed cooperation in trade, tourism, investments, energy, logistics and transport.
Today, as never before, economic relations between Georgia and Azerbaijan are at a very high level. Azerbaijan traditionally has been a leader in bilateral trade relations,” said Georgian Economy Minister Natia Turnava.
Turnava noted Georgian-Azerbaijani joint projects in the fields of economy, infrastructure and business.
Over 700 companies with Azerbaijani capital are operating in Georgia and there is a very good environment for joint business and also for Azerbaijani business to operate in Georgia,” said Turnava.
The issue of cooperation on international recognition and development of the transport corridor passing through Georgia and Azerbaijan was also discussed at the meeting.
If our countries unite their efforts to increase the competitiveness of the common transport corridor, it will be beneficial for both countries," said Turnava.
The Azerbaijani economy minister’s visit to Georgia is the continuation of the Davos meeting of Georgian PM Giorgi Gakharia and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev where they discussed important regional transport and energy projects.
