Georgia and Latvia deepen cooperation
Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis met with the Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili in Tbilisi.
Vejonis said his visit to Georgia signifies friendly ties between Latvia and Georgia.
"This visit is also very symbolic because visa-free regime for Georgian citizens to the Schengen area has entered in force today to prove that reforms of Georgia have been successful. I’m confident that this free travel will bring Georgia closer to the European Union (EU),” Vejonis said, hoping that travel will continue to strengthen cooperation between Georgian and Latvian people.
He believes Georgia has worked hard to grow closer to the EU and NATO; however, he added that reform effort is still needed in judiciary, rule of law and good governance.
Vejonis said that economic cooperation between the two countries has increased in recent years and identified space for even more cooperation in information technology, tourism, trade and investment. He said the association agreement between Georgia and the EU has opened a door for more business contacts, Agenda.ge reported.
