The parties discussed a wide range of trade and economic cooperation between the two countries.
They focused on cooperation in trade and investment.
The parties said that Great Britain is an important strategic, political, and economic partner of Georgia.
"Currently, despite COVID-19 and the global economic crisis, foreign direct investment from the UK increased in the second quarter. It is also crucial that the UK is the leader in foreign direct investments. In particular, in 2020, 32% of the total foreign direct investment in Georgia came from the UK," Turnava stated.
