Premier Li Keqiang on Sept 10 met with Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili, who is in Dalian to attend Summer Davos.

Premier Li said China and Georgia respect each other as equals and their bilateral ties have been growing rapidly.

China is ready to participate in Georgia’s infrastructure construction such as ports, roads and railway and start substantial negotiations on a free-trade agreement as soon as possible in order to make new breakthroughs in bilateral trade.

He also expressed hope for more cultural and people-to-people exchanges to promote comprehensive friendly ties between the two countries.

Hailing the cooperation between the two countries, Gharibashvili said ties with China is a top priority for his country’s diplomacy.

The prime minister said his country hopes to become a reliable cooperation partner and a destination for China’s investment and serve as a bridge for China to enter the European market.
