Li Hui, the Government Special Envoy of the People’s Republic of China in the Eurasia Region, participated in the Opening Panel of the Tbilisi Silk Road Forum - Towards the Common Future: Understanding the Stability and Sustainable Growth Patterns and talked about the role of the cooperation between the countries within the frames of the Silk Road Initiative. 


“With joint efforts we managed to build a network that consists of 6 corridors, 6 interconnected routs and number of countries and seaports. Georgia is actively involves in the process. It is very important that we, Georgia and China have signed the Free Trade Agreement between our countries and this is the first of a kind agreement that we have ever signed in the region. Last year the trade volume between our countries exceeded one million USD while in the first half of the current year this number has already reached 900 million USD,” - Special Envoy of the People’s Republic of China stated.

Li Hui also noted that there are number of companies operating in Georgia following the Chinese investments. “We know that the rout via Georgia is the shortest way connecting Europe and Asia. I am sure and I believe that today’s Forum will bring significant outcomes. This is a very high-level forum which will be followed by broad public and government feedback. This is a reflection of the spirit of the Silk Road, and we very much hope that the companies and government representatives participating in today’s Forum will actively participate in the negotiations,” – he said.

Special Envoy of the People’s Republic of China also talked about the importance of Georgian wines since Georgian wine is becoming more and more popular in China and in these terms, it is important that more Georgian wine is delivered to China. Li Hui mentioned the Second Export-Import Exhibition held in Shanghai, which is the largest platform focused on the imported goods. 


“Last year, the Exhibition hosted representatives from over 170 countries and regions. We hope that Georgia will participate in the Exhibition this year and contribute from this opportunity to further develop the trade and economic links. Last year, within the frames of the Exhibition, the China National Television prepared a story on Georgia and Georgian wines, which received a great deal of positive feedback. This means that the Chinese people already know about Georgia and Georgian wine,” – Li Hui commented.

Government Special Envoy of the People’s Republic of China in the Eurasia Region offered Georgian Government to hold a large-scale presentation forum in Chine targeting at attracting more investment from China to Georgia.
