Georgia to focus on deepening trade ties with EU

BAKU, Azerbaijan, Mar. 15

By Tamilla Mammadova – Trend:

Georgian delegation headed by Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili has left for Brussels, Belgium this morning to participate in the 6th EU-Georgia Association Committee meeting where along with political issues, economic ones will also be discussed, Trend reports via Georgian media.

Georgian Economy Minister Natia Turnava said that the Georgian delegation will focus on deepening trade ties with the EU.

"First of all, the main important issue will be Black Sea outbound routes and our better connections with European ports. We still have some ferry routes today, but that is not really enough to do better trade with the EU, which is our largest trading partner today", said Turnava.

She said that the second issue which will be discussed in Brussels is local companies how to better conquer the EU market, how to select new product groups for it and enter the EU market easier.

The Georgian delegation will hold meetings at the European Parliament and NATO on March 17.

The same day Garibashvili will meet with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenger.

NATO-Georgia Commission meeting will also take place.
