“We Stand by Georgia” Deputy Secretary Sullivan Tells Business and Government Leaders in Tbilisi
Tbilisi, Georgia (Oct. 27)—Deputy Secretary of Commerce John J. Sullivan opened the first U.S.-Georgia Business Summit today before more than 180 participants. Deputy Secretary Sullivan reaffirmed America’s commitment to support Georgia’s democracy, territorial integrity and security. This commitment is reflected in America’s actions, including a multi-year $1 billion commitment of economic assistance announced by President Bush last month. Among the objectives of the trip is to encourage bilateral trade ties between Georgia and the United States. While trade with Georgia was nearly $600 million last year “There is tremendous potential for growth in our bilateral trading relationship,” Sullivan said. (Remarks)
