Georgian and South Korean officials on Tuesday held negotiations on a free trade agreement in Seoul with prospects of strengthening trade and economic ties between the two countries and increasing exports of Georgian products to the Korean market, the Georgian Ministry of Economy said.


Genadi Arveladze, the Deputy Economy Minister, said the discussions would accelerate the negotiation process.


Georgia sees South Korea as an important trade and economic partner in the Asian region. The country is a potential market for Georgian products such as wine, mineral waters and food products. We also hope to enhance cooperation in other areas such as tourism, civil aviation, transport and logistics and information technology”, he said.
The Ministry said the bilateral meetings would conclude on Wednesday, with the second round of negotiations to be held in May.


The first round took place in Georgia in February, with the Ministry calling its results “promising”, with “significant progress” made on “several important topics”.
