Georgia-Turkey Trade and Investment Bridge-a two-day business forum was opened on June 15 at Holiday Inn hotel. The event was attended by around 100 representatives from Georgian and Turkish business sectors. Dimitri Gvindadze, the Minister of Finance of Georgia and Levent Murat Burhan, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Turkey to Georgia, delivered opening speeches. Kakha Baindurashvili, the President of Georgian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), attended the forum.

“High-level delegation of Turkish businessmen, potential investors, has arrived in Georgia. If we look at Georgian-Turkish relations in terms of trade-investment field, we can say it’s an exemplary case of what two dynamically and rapidly developing countries with right regional, economic, trade and logistic policy, can achieve,” declared the Minister of Finance of Georgia.

“There are lots of opportunities in Georgian-Turkish commercial relations. This large scale visit of Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists of Turkey proved it once again. It is even more welcoming assuming the confederation was and is very active on priority markets,” declared the President of GCCI.

The aim of the Trade and Investment Bridge business forum is to provide a venue for Turkish and Georgian business representatives to network with professionals from specific industry sectors and identify potential partners from both countries as well as learn about the business and investment environments.

The first day of the forum was focused on presentations and B2B discussions, and the second day covered site visits with potential partners, and additional discussions.

Representatives from the agriculture and food processing, construction materials, consulting, tourism and hospitality, ICT, packaging and transport & logistics sectors participated in the Trade and Investment Bridge business forum. Companies benefited from a series of B2B meetings.
