The Belarus Press Service reported that five contracts were signed at the Belarus-Georgia business forum that took place in Tbilisi on Wednesday.
The contracts total approximately $4 million and include food production, mechanical engineering and petrochemical industry activity.
Belarus Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chairman Mikhail Myatlikov attended the forum that brought representatives from 42 Belarus companies and over 200 Georgian companies together to facilitate trade and cooperative relations. According to Myatlikov, the level of trade between the two countries is lacking and could easily be doubled this year.
Currently, Georgia ranks 57th among Belarus' 170 trading partners. The country has expressed interest in Belarusian furniture, building materials and pharmaceuticals.
The delegation from Belarus gave a presentation for their counterparts that covered the economic potential and provided a sampling period of Belarusian food and drink.
