Also discussed were the strategic membership of our countries: Armenia in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and Georgia in the EU Despite the signing of the Association Agreement with the EU and the availability of free trade with Europe, and the fact that Armenia is a member of the EAEU is not about weakened the Armenian-Georgian economic cooperation, on the contrary, we see that the freight turnover between our countries has increased, according to statistics, the flow of tourists has also increased, so I can say that the visit of the Armenian president to Georgia is another step forward, another attempt to make full use of the existing potential for the benefit of our peoples," Margvelashvili said.
