    Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman started a two-day official visit to Georgia. During the visit, the Head of Ukrainian Government will hold talks with President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili, Prime Minister of Georgia Giorgi Kvirikashvili and with Chairman of the Georgian Parliament Irakli Kobakhidze. The Prime Minister is also scheduled to take part in the Economic Forum "One Belt, One Road".

    Background

    Ukraine and Georgia are maintaining the relations of strategic partnership. The trade turnover between the two countries in 2016 amounted to the tune of $ 456 million, but this figure could be doubled, up to $1 billion. Ukraine welcomes the Georgian government's assistance in involving Ukrainian companies in the implementation of infrastructure projects in Georgia and pledges readiness to deepen cooperation in the area of developing the transit potential of the two states, especially as part of the New Silk Road project.

    Key issues on the agenda of cooperation between Kyiv and Tbilisi are the continued policy of maintaining sovereignty and territorial integrity at the bilateral level and within international organizations, as well as rapprochement with the EU and NATO.
