Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili on Monday highlighted “important” economic reforms implemented in the country over the recent years in his address at the World Government Summit in Dubai, Revaz Javelidze, the Head of the Government Administration, said. 

Javelidze, who is accompanying the PM in his Summit participation, stressed Georgia had been represented at the event as “one of the successful countries”, adding the Government had a “desire and interest” in developing economic ties with the UAE. 

He said along with the country’s “double-digit-economic growth” - which he said had been achieved despite existing regional and global challenges on the backdrop of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict - the PM had also raised “strategic projects of regional importance” that were being implemented or planned. 

Javelidze said these included “several infrastructural, energy and logistics projects” being carried out in the country with the participation of foreign partners. 

Garibashvili arrived in Dubai on Sunday to attend the event that is bringing together world leaders, global experts and decision-makers from around the globe to share and contribute to the development of tools, policies, and models for shaping future governments. 

The Summit is scheduled to close on Wednesday.
