Greek shipowners are one of the largest employers of Georgian sailors. Accordingly, the parties paid great attention to the employment of seafarers and also took an interest in innovations in the field of maritime education and training. The Georgian side focused on the innovations introduced in this field, the implemented infrastructure projects and the successful international audits by Georgia.

The Greek side stressed the high level of competence and professionalism of Georgian sailors and also the high degree of credibility of Georgian documents.

 

Thanks to the systemic reforms and projects implemented in Georgia since 2013, we have a zero rate of falsification of Georgian seafarer documentation, which leads to the trust of employers and the high reputation of Georgian sailors.

Special attention was paid to the cooperation between Georgia and Greece in the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The Greek Minister of Maritime Affairs thanked the Georgian delegation for its fruitful work in the IMO Legal Committee, chaired by Ivane Abashidze, Deputy Director of the Maritime Transport Agency.
