Q-n about the meeting

Ambassador Kelly Degnan: I had a very substantive meeting with the Minister. We have so many areas of cooperation that we are already working on to contribute to Georgia’s economic development. Our goal is to help Georgia build prosperity in all regions of the country, not just in particular ones. So, it’s a very broad reaching program that we have in energy, in small and medium enterprises, in agriculture, and maritime areas. So, we are working very closely with the Minister and with her Ministry, and we look forward to expanding our cooperation even further, with more American investment in Georgia.
