 As per the Georgian Agriculture Minister, Otar Shamugia, “The visit from the Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili, to the United Arab Emirates, was itself a confirmation of the importance of close partnership and friendly relations between the countries. I think Georgia, as a nation carries a massive potential for deepening trade relations, which will be both beneficial and mutually effective for Georgia as well as the United Arab Emirates”.

At the same time, the Arab Ambassador to Georgia, Ahmed Alnuaim stated, “Georgia, with its environmental and agricultural development opportunities, is the subject of interest of Arab investors. We certainly welcome the issue of further strengthening the partnership between the countries.”
