BAKU (IRNA) - The vol­ume of trade ex­change be­tween Iran and Ge­or­gia has ex­pe­ri­enced 50% growth in two years, an Ira­nian min­is­ter said.

The trade ex­change rose from $83 mil­lion to $131 mil­lion, Min­is­ter of Co­op­er­a­tive, La­bor and So­cial Wel­fare Ali Ra­biee said. Ra­bie also serves as head of Iran-Ge­or­gia sixth joint eco­nomic com­mis­sion. He pointed to prob­lems in both coun­tries’ co­op­er­a­tion, say­ing that 12,000 trucks are trav­el­ling be­tween the two coun­tries an­nu­ally which had some prob­lems due to the pro­ce­dures of get­ting per­mits but now the two sides have made de­ci­sions so that Ira­nian trucks will travel to Ge­or­gia with­out need­ing to get per­mits.

Ge­or­gian Prime Min­is­ter Giorgi Kvirikashvili has ex­pressed in­ter­est to ad­dress the is­sue of fi­nan­cial and mon­e­tary ex­changes be­tween the two coun­tries, Ra­biee said.
