In recent years, under the principle of the initiative of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, Gansu and Partnership Fund of Georgia have reached many consensuses on bilateral cooperation.
Georgia's national development strategy of building a logistics center and a transportation hub is highly compatible with Gansu's new pattern of opening-up, featuring both internal and external considerations, land and sea combination, westward orientation and multi-directional development.
Gansu is ready to make full use of its geographical advantages, resource endowment and industrial foundation to continuously deepen friendly exchanges and pragmatic cooperation with Georgia in trade and investment, traditional medicine, culture and education.
David Saganelidze and Mamuka Saghareishvili said it was important to be a major participant of BRI. They hoped to further deepen exchanges and cooperation with Gansu to jointly promote the Belt and Road Initiative to achieve more fruitful results.
