Belarus, Georgia urged to bolster inter-parliamentary ties

MINSK, 19 April (BelTA) - The development of inter-parliamentary relations, trade and economic cooperation was discussed during a meeting between Chairman of the Council of the Republic Mikhail Myasnikovich and Georgian Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Belarus Valeri Kvaratskhelia, BelTA learned from the press service of the upper house of the Belarusian Parliament.

According to Mikhail Myasnikovich, the MPs of the two countries could cooperate more effectively, particularly through friendship groups. “We could intensify inter-parliamentary ties, which will contribute to the cooperation between our countries, including between the business communities. We have a good basis and good prospects for this,” he said. At the same time, the countries need to move from simple trade to investment cooperation, setting up joint companies.

Belarus is also interested in developing the cooperation with Georgia in education and science. “This applies to the training of IT professionals. We have modern scientific schools that could be of interest to Georgia,” Mikhail Myasnikovich noted.

For his part, the Georgian ambassador noted the high interest of the Georgia business community in cooperation with Belarus. “IT-services and healthcare are among the promising areas of interaction,” he said. With regard to healthcare, the two countries already cooperate. Georgian students come to Belarus for training. Other projects are being implemented. As part of one of them, for example, Georgia has supplied medicines to treat hepatitis C to Belarus. Some 1,500 Belarusian patients got the medicine.

Belarus and Georgia have been steadily strengthening bilateral ties and mutual trade. The number of joint projects has been gradually expanding. This cooperation is based on mutual respect and a high level of trust between the two heads of state. The parliamentary dimension plays an important role in strengthening bilateral partnership.
