Georgia, Tbilisi, July 17 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian Prime Minister Nika Gilauri and Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Tigipko mulled the Georgian-Ukrainian relations July 16.
Gilauri noted about importance of Tigipko's Georgia visit in the sense that this is the first official visit by the new Ukrainian government's representative to Georgia after the country elected a new president.
The main purpose of the visit is to familiarize with Georgia's experience and reforms implemented in the country, Gilauri said.
"The matter deals with the fight against corruption, the new tax code in what Ukraine intends to take over most of the Georgian experience," he added.
Gilauri said they discussed the issues of bilateral cooperation. Gilauri said the Georgian-Ukranian political relations are at a high level.
In addition, the Ukrainian companies invested much in Georgia, including in the banking sector, as well as in the Ferro plant, Gilauri said.
Tigipko also met with Finance Minister Kakha Baindurashvili. Baindurashvili said the meeting discussed the ways that contribute to the deepening of economic relations between the two countries.
"We familiarized colleagues with the reforms, which have been successfully implemented in Georgia in terms of the formation of the liberal tax environment," he said. "You have managed to achieve much in a short period of time, and I think that it is not shameful, when Ukraine was interested in studying this experience, the more successful experience."
Tigipko stressed that he is accompanied by "a large delegation of experts" to study the Georgian experience.
Tigipko also met with Georgian Parliamentary Speaker David Bakradze.
