The Israeli private sector is interested in studying legal basis for conducting business in Georgia, Trend reports with reference to Georgian media.
As reported, about 100 representatives of private companies of Israel arrived in Tbilisi. Potential investors want to learn more about the prospects of doing business in Georgia.
The meeting with investors was organized by the Georgian-Israeli business chamber.
"Some 100 representatives of private companies of Israel came to Tbilisi. We want them to familiarize with Georgian legislation and business environment. After that, we expect a new wave of investors and businessmen to arrive in the country," said Chamber President Itsik Moshe.
He believes that the Georgian government should be more actively involved in strengthening business relations between the two countries.
According to Moshe, last year, the chamber’s goal was to develop the tourism industry, and this year more attention will be paid to deepening business ties and creating more acceptable conditions for the development of foreign business in Georgia.
Georgia and Israel established diplomatic relations on June 1, 1992. Countries cooperate in the fields of trade, economy, culture, education and tourism.
A visa-free regime between Georgia and Israel has been in force since March 2014.
