Political dialogue between Georgia and Romania may easily be labeled as being at the highest level today. It is important for us to further deepen the economic cooperation, – The Prime Minister of Georgia Mamuka Bakhtadze stated in a joint press conference in Romania, after meeting with Romanian Prime Minister Vasilica Viorica Dăncilă.
As Prime Minister noted Georgia stands ready to have an ambitious agenda to develop the bilateral economic relations towards increasing the untapped potential of the Black Sea region to its highest level.
“Meeting held in Bucharest on March 4, 2019 is tremendously important within this context and Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Georgia, Romania, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan issued a Joint Political Declaration on the development of a common transport corridor. It is particularly important for me as I was among the authors of this new corridor from my previous capacity as a CEO of the Georgian Railway JSC. It is particularly rewarding that this truly great idea is gradually getting to fruition”, – Prime Minister said.
According to Mamuka Bakhtadze, Georgia pays special importance to the interaction of Constanta with marine ports of Georgia.
“We assign special importance to the interaction of Constanta with marine ports of Georgia, especially when we are building a deep-sea port in the country that is bound to create completely new opportunities of economic cooperation. At the same time, we have innovative projects in the energy sector that will lead to the much better energy security of EU and European family, by thereby strengthening the role of Georgia towards this end”, – Mamuka Bakhtadze added.
As the Prime Minister said, Georgia wants to have a strategic level of bilateral relations with Romania.
“As a result of the aforesaid, naturally our desire is to make our bilateral relations strategic and this is our position, which we openly declare today. By transforming our shared efforts and relations into strategic partnership, we will develop all those significant issues that we discussed today and that are mutually and truly strategic both for Romania and Georgia”, – Mamuka Bakhtadze stated.
“I am confident that our meeting and my visit will enable us to advance our relations to a new level by every dimension”, – Georgian Prime Minister added.
