Mikhail Myatlikov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to Georgia:
We have intensified our cooperation. As an example, I can say that earlier we had more than 200 commodity items which Belarus exported to Georgia. In 2017 we already had 320 commodity positions at the level of four signs of the commodity nomenclature of foreign economic activity.

Therefore, the range of products present in the markets of Georgia is expanding. If we find new options for deliveries of Belarusian products, the number of goods and turnover will instantly grow by several times.

Simultaneously with the visit of the Belarusian leader to Tbilisi, the Days of Minsk are being held. Businessmen and representatives of state structures will gather for a business forum that is to open in the Georgian capital. The sides are convinced that the current visit and summit meetings will push the countries to new projects.
