The FINANCIAL -- Georgia for the first time took part in an annual gathering of the Caribbean community - the Council for Foreign and Community Relations (COFCOR) – held in the framework of the 70th session of the United Nation’s General Assembly in New York.

The Minister underlined that Georgia actively works in this direction exchanging visits and establishing diplomatic representations.  Given this, the Minister underlined the opening of the Embassy of Georgia in Cuba that significantly facilitates the enhancement of close co-operation with the Caribbean countries, and noted that Georgia will extend its diplomatic presence in all member states of the CARICOM in the near future.
