TBILISI, January 8 /TASS/. Georgian Prime Minister Irakliy Garibashvili will leave on a two-day working visit to Latvia on Thursday to discuss bilateral cooperation and Georgia’s EU integration.
Latvia is holding the EU rotating presidency in the first half of 2015.
During his visit to Latvia, the Georgian prime minister is expected to meet Latvian Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma, Latvian President Andris Berzins; Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics and the new speaker of the Latvian Saeima /parliament/, Inara Murniece.
In Riga, Garibashvili will also attend the European Year for Development 2015 international conference and will deliver a report together with Rinkevics devoted to management and the role of effective institutions for countries’ sustainable development.
The Georgian delegation also comprises Foreign Minister Tamar Beruchashvili, Economy Minister and Vice-Premier Georgy Kvirikashvili and David Bakradze, the state minister for integration into European and Euro-Atlantic bodies.
Georgia and Latvia established diplomatic relations in March 1993. Cooperation between the two countries could hardly be called intensive before 2004. Over the past 10 years, Latvia and Georgia have stepped up cooperation in economy, trade and politics. Latvia is helping Georgia to carry out reforms, integrate into the European Union and NATO and conquer European markets.
