The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) received Tornike Rizhvadze, Chairman of the Government of the Autonomous Republic of Adjara-Georgia, and his delegation to discuss enhancing economic relations between the two countries.

The bilateral meeting aimed to foster cooperation in the areas of trade, industry, agriculture, and tourism, and identify potential investment opportunities for investors and businessmen in both nations.

The delegation, which also featured Paata Kalandadze, Georgian Ambassador to the UAE, and a number of Georgian officials, was welcomed by  Abdullah Sultan Al Owais, Chairman of SCCI, as well as a number of members of SCCI Board of Directors.

Humaid Mohamed Bin Salem, Secretary General of the Federation of UAE Chambers of Commerce & Industry, Mohammad Ahmed Amin Al Awadi, Director-General of SCCI, Abdulaziz Mohammed Shattaf, Assistant Director-General of the Communication and Business Sector at the Sharjah Chamber, and Fatema Khalifa Al Muqarrab, Director of the International Relations Department, were also present.

During the meeting, the Chamber urged the Georgian business community to take advantage of the investment opportunities available in Sharjah.  It emphasized its commitment to supporting and facilitating their work, and stressed the importance of arranging reciprocal visits and meetings between the two parties. Welcoming the President of Adjara and his delegation to the Sharjah Chamber, Al Owais said that the UAE’s bilateral relations with Georgia have reached a new height with the recent high-level visit by Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, Minister of State for Foreign Trade, and the UAE-Georgia Business Forum.

“This meeting is of great importance as it will help to strengthen and upgrade our economic cooperation and services, especially since non-oil foreign trade between our two countries has doubled and reached more than AED 1.7 billion in 2022.”
