Natia Turnava, the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia, held an online meeting with Joseph Semsar, U.S. Department of Commerce Deputy Under Secretary for International Trade.
As the Ministry reported, during the online meeting, it was noted that the United States is Georgia ‘s main strategic partner and ally, and its assistance and projects to Georgia over the years have made a significant contribution to Georgia’ s democratic development and to the establishment of free market economy.
The parties discussed the importance of concluding a free trade agreement. It was noted that a study was conducted at the initiative of the Georgian side which showed that the free trade agreement between Georgia and the United States would be beneficial for both countries.
“The US-Georgia Free Trade Agreement will be a mixture of political and economic interests, a clear message of increasing US economic curiosity in the region,” stated Turnava.
