President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has received Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili, who is on a visit to the country, on May 5.

Both officials praised ‘centuries-long brotherly relations’ and mentioned the importance of regional projects which have been carried out through joint efforts in recent years. 

Aliyev said that the projects "changed the map of the region, political, economic, transportation and energy map."

"Without the strong partnership the projects would not have been implemented. The last day of 2020 was the last day of the implementation of the Southern Gas Corridor project which has tremendous importance for the whole region.I am very grateful to the Georgian government for constant support in the implementation of this important project," Aliyev said.

He stated that Azerbaijan is among large investors in the Georgian economy "thanks to the reforms which have been carried out in the country."

"There is a good investment climate in Georgia and I know that many Azerbaijani companies are interested in working there," cited Aliyev as saying.
