Georgian Finance Minister Nodar Khaduri's working visit to the U.S. has ended. In the final hours of the visit he met with President of the Asian Development Bank Takehiko Nakao and Citi Bank representatives.
At a meeting with the president of the Asian Development Bank, the parties discussed projects undertaken by the bank in Georgia.
The construction of the Tbilisi- Rustavi highway, rehabilitation of the water supply and sewerage systems were also discussed. According to the agreement reached by the parties, the business forum will be held in Tbilisi in spring of 2014. It will be organised by the Georgian government and the bank.
"Our meeting was fruitful," Khaduri said. "We agreed that a business forum will be held in spring of 2014. It will be organised by the Asian Development Bank and the Georgian government. I think investors will show an interest in this format.
"The meetings held in the U.S. convinced me that the general background is very good. Washington is well aware of the situation in Georgia. The investors and heads of international financial organisations trust the new government. We agreed that our cooperation will actively continue in bilateral and multilateral formats."
