Mayor Rees was on a recent visit to Tbilisi with a business delegation from the Guild of Guardians, including the chief executive of the Bristol Chamber of Commerce. The Mayor was invited by Ambassador Justin McKenzie Smith to officially open the new Bristol Room at the British Embassy in Tbilisi. The Mayor and delegation members took part in a one day business conference with key Georgian representatives from different sectors and economic networks. The Ambassador also arranged for a working lunch for the Mayor and chief exec James Durie with the Georgian Chamber of Commerce, the Invest in Georgia and the Georgia Business Association. The visit proved very successful in building business confidence and opening doors for Bristol and South West businesses to trade with Georgia. Thanks to the BTA and TBC Bank for sponsoring the event. The Mayor and James Durie also held discussions with Mayor Kaladze of Tbilisi before presenting him with a Bristol Bears signed shirt and a limited edition print of Bristol.45068358 2033565050043865 4458677293111312384 o  DPI1464 web
