Kazakhstan and Georgia are strengthening their multi-sectorial cooperation. Trade and economic ties are developing between the two countries. Last year, the mutual trade grew by 56 per cent and the result continues to grow. Kazakhstan and Georgia are using their transit potential effectively. The recently launched Baku-Tbilisi-Kars international transport project has expanded opportunities in the transit area. As part of the Great Silk Road, this project has become an alternative route for the supply of goods from Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries to Europe. Georgia is the major strategic partner of Kazakhstan and it provides the latter access to sea.

ZURAB PATARADZE, HEAD OF GOVERNMENT OF ADJARA, GEORGIA:

- The route from Central Asia through the Caspian Sea and further through Georgia and the Black Sea to Europe is really important route for trade. There is a way to properly diversify routes and links, and I think that our countries have great potential in this area. We are closely cooperating with our Kazakh colleagues to attract additional cargoes from China, Central Asia and India.   

Over 120 Kazakh-Georgian joint enterprises are currently operating in Kazakhstan and there are over 250 Kazakh companies in Georgia.

ZURAB PATARADZE, HEAD OF GOVERNMENT OF ADJARA, GEORGIA:

- I want to stress that trade between our countries grew by three times, compared to 2017. This is a huge effect, the right strategy, direct contacts between our businessmen and the use of relevant tools.

Meanwhile, the two countries are strengthening cooperation in other areas as well. Kazakhstan is currently ranked among the top ten countries in terms of the number of tourist visits to Georgia. The figure grew by 20 per cent compared to last year. Currently, the total number of direct flights from Kazakhstan and Georgia is 20 times per week.
