Georgia and Konya Strengthen Economic Ties

A delegation of Georgian businessmen, organized by the MÜSİAD Konya Branch, conducted bilateral business meetings with industrialists and businessmen from Konya as part of the Konya - Georgia Autonomous Republic of Adjara B2B Program.

 

 

 

The program organized by MÜSİAD Konya Branch was attended by Giorgi Romanadze, the President of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of the Autonomous Republic of Adjara, which is under the central administration of Georgia. Also present were Hamza Köse, the President of the MÜSİAD Batumi Branch, and members of the branch, along with business people who are members of the Adjara Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

 

 

 

Giorgi Romanadze, the President of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of the Autonomous Republic of Adjara, emphasized that Turkey is a friendly country and also the largest trading partner of Georgia. He stated, "Both in the Adjara region and throughout Georgia, Turkish-Georgian business partnerships exist and their collaborative efforts continue. Our country holds an important position in accessing the Asian market due to its location. With the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) signed in 2007, customs duties and equivalent taxes on industrial products have been eliminated, and barriers to mutual trade have been lifted. This is my first visit to Konya during my presidency, and besides its cultural richness, I have witnessed that it is a highly developed city in terms of industry. When I return to my country, I consider it my duty to introduce this city to Georgian businessmen. The B2B meetings to be held here will be the beginning of this endeavor."

 


Following the speeches, a business development meeting and B2B meetings took place. Members of the MÜSİAD Konya branch, Konya businessmen, members of MÜSİAD Batumi, and businesspeople from the Adjara Chamber of Commerce and Industry engaged in bilateral business discussions at sector-specific tables. Subsequently, visits to various companies in the Konya industry were conducted.
