According to Mr. Hideki, Georgia has the potential to develop climate-smart agriculture and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Japanese side is ready to cooperate with Georgia at both the governmental and private sector levels, aiming to deepen relations and implement projects beneficial for both sides.


As mentioned,  bilateral cooperation in the agricultural and environmental protection areas will be actively continued.
