Georgia and South Korea discuss economic cooperation
Baku, Azerbaijan, October 18
By Tamilla Mammadova – Trend:
Georgian Parliament Speaker Archil Talakvadze and his South Korean counterpart discussed the possibility of a free trade agreement between the countries, Trend reports citing the Georgian media outlets.
As Talakvadze noted, this was the first discussion on the topic. He expressed hope that negotiations would continue in this direction and conclude with an agreement.
Talakvadze said that last month the Korean delegation visited Georgia and the delegation members were introduced to the reforms carried out in the country and provided information on its position in international ratings.
“Sectoral cooperation is dynamically developing between Georgia and Korea. The largest Korean companies are successfully operating in the Georgian market, economic cooperation between our countries is expanding and more and more Koreans are visiting Georgia. Cultural and scientific ties are expanding. The fact that Koreans, together with their families, decide to come to Georgia and experience Georgian hospitality means that today there is more trust between our countries,” said the speaker.
According to Talakvadze, the arrival of the South Korean official in Georgia is another signal that relations between the two nations are very strong, and that this strength extends to inter-parliamentary relations.
