Ajara Investment Potential presented to Trabzon Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Delegation of Ajara Autonomous Republic visited Trabzon Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Investment potential of Ajara was presented after meeting with the Head of the Chamber. Local business sector representatives attended the presentation. The Chairman of Ajara AR Government Zurab Pataradze addressed the audience and talked about the ongoing successful projects and investment climate.

‘Region of Ajara is one of the most interesting in terms of investment attractiveness. All conditions are created for business development: fast developing economic, high level of safety, simplicity of doing business (9th place in the world), effective public agencies, and liberal legislation. Free trade agreements with Europe, China and CIS countries allow the products produced in Georgia to reach 900 million consumer markets without customs duties. This, in turn, has a great potential for Georgia as a trading hub’ – Zurab Pataradze noted and expressed hope the cooperation between neighboring regions to become even more effective in future.

Zurab Pataradze positively evaluated meeting with the heads of the region at the end of two days visit. According to him, many important issues were discussed in the frames of the visit.

‘We have held several meetings with the economic and cultural-educational directions. First, we talked about Sarpi customs checkpoint. Together with Artvin Governor, we decided to hold permanent bilateral meetings, where the situation on the customs will be discussed. One of the main topics is cruise tourism. We have agreed with the board's leadership to hold a business meeting, where the issue of creating new cruise route will be discussed. Our wish is to offer liners swimming in the black sea Trabzon and Batumi. We will discuss this issue with representatives of different countries: Bulgaria, the Ukraine and Romania, which will involve in this tourism route’ – Zurab Pataradze said.
