Kekelia met with representatives of leading companies in the agricultural, energy and communication sectors and explained the business environment in Georgia.
"The Chinese government has approved a five-year economic development plan, which provides infusion of $1.5 trillion into the economy and investing several hundred billions in the overseas. The country mainly invests in Africa. We are trying to attract investment in Georgia, especially as our country created all conditions for Chinese business to feel good.
