TBILISI, January 03, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s decision to ease a procedure for issuing visas for Georgian carriers will promote the development of trade and economic cooperation between both countries, the premier’s special envoy for relations with Russia, Zurab Abashidze, said on Friday.
“Under Russia’s decision, a procedure for issuing visas for Georgian carriers (drivers) has been eased,” the Economy Ministry’s Agency for Overland Transport reported.
“After Georgian carriers go through all procedures they will be issued multiple business visas to Russia for the period of 12 months,” the Georgian agency said.
“This move will help increase cargo and passenger carriages between the two countries, reduce the time and the cost of transportation, help give jobs to Georgian carriers working in bilateral transit cargo and passenger highway service,” the agency said.
“This will increase trade turnover between the two countries and become one more step towards Georgia’s economic development,” it adds.
Georgian businessmen and companies, which maintain active relations with Russia, praise this move. Wines, mineral water, agricultural goods, citrus fruits and other products are supplied to Russia.
