The delegation unites representatives of various business sectors. The delegation is led by Edward Iau, secretary of Trade and Economic Development Council.
Objective of the delegation is to participate in infrastructural projects, Edward Iau noted.
“We are interested in developing economic and business relations between Georgia and Hong Kong. Georgia’s geographical location is of strategic importance, the gate towards European countries. At this stage, Hong Kong is not represented in Georgia with major investments, but we are interested in various infrastructural projects, seaports and roads. We are also interested in railway, startups and funding new ideas. Georgia and Hong Kong have certain similarities – both of them have open and free economy and this factor will promote our cooperation”, Edward Iau noted.
As part of the visit, Edward Iau and several delegates will meet with Georgian Vice Prime Minister Maia Tskitishvili, Minister of Economy Giorgi Kobulia and Minister of Finance Ivane Machavariani.
