In the summer of 2021, the mission was supported by the Ministry of economy of Ukraine, the Ministry of foreign affairs of Ukraine, with the assistance of the embassy of Ukraine in Georgia, the Office for entrepreneurship and export development, and the Center for international business communications.
The visit lasted five days. During this time, the delegation visited three key cities — the capitals of Tbilisi, Batumi, and the port of Poti.
- Georgia's potential provides opportunities to facilitate trade and increase trade flows in the Mediterranean region;
- doing business with both local representatives and non-residents of the country;
- Georgia's taxation system is an additional incentive.
"Georgia has changed in recent years. The country is actively modernizing its transport and logistics infrastructure with a view to attracting goods from the east, actively attracting investment from China. I believe that we in Ukraine have no right to ignore this economic trend. Cooperation between Ukraine and Georgia will only intensify. Now we have good dynamics: the growth of exports over the past five months by 21% and imports by 65%," commented Vladyslava Magaletska, head of the state service of Ukraine for food safety and consumer protection on her Facebook page.
Let's recall that the mission to Georgia was aimed at strengthening the already close international partnership between the two countries. The rich program of the visit guaranteed the participating companies the opportunity to discover the potential of each country in the context of business, new opportunities for development, and networking.

- Georgia's national food agency has announced its intention to positively promote the approval of a bilateral veterinary certificate for poultry meat in the near future;
