Georgia, Tbilisi, June 15 /Trend N.Kirtzkhalia/
The Georgian-Turkish Bridge of Trade and Investment opened in Tbilisi.
The business forum is held under the auspices of the U.S. Agency for International Development, United Nations Programme for Promoting Trade and Investment in the Black Sea region, the Chamber of Commerce of Georgia and the Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists of Turkey.
The forum was attended by representatives of more than 100 companies operating in various fields such as agriculture, the food processing industry, tourism, information and communication technologies, transport and logistics.
The meeting was opened by the Minister of Finance of Georgia, Dmitry Gvindadze, who spoke about the business climate in the country.
He noted that there is a good business environment in Georgia. There is almost no corruption and businessmen can conduct their activities without bribes. There is a stable banking sector and developing infrastructure.
The Minister of Finance also noted the flexibility of the Labour Code.
"Georgian labour legislation noted for being the most flexible, helps you to hire local staff," he said.
President of the Chamber of Commerce of Georgia Kakha Baindurashvili said this conference has traditionally focused on the priority economic sectors. There is still great potential remaining in commercial relations between Georgia and Turkey.
"The representatives' visit of Turkish businessmen once again confirms this interest and opportunities," Baindurashvili said.
