The delegation of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Abkhazia participated in the XI World Congress of Chambers of Commerce in Rio de Janeiro.

Sukhum. June 20. Apsnypress. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Abkhazia told at a press conference about participation of the delegation headed by President Tamila Mertskhulava in World Congress which took place in Brazi.
 
 According to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Abkhazia, 1200 representatives from 100 countries of the world participated in the Congress, 1000 of whom were delegates and 80 were speakers. The World Congress of Chambers of Commerce has been organized since 1999, once every two years. Within the framework of the event were held discussions and free exchange of views, competitions for projects that the chambers represent to the jury.
 
 Tamila Mertskhulava told about the most important meetings within the framework of the Congress: “The Abkhaz Chamber of Commerce and Industry has been participating in the Congress since 2009. We had an official meeting with the Mayor of Rio de Janeiro Marcelo Crivella, where there was an opportunity to introduce our Republic and tell about its history. According to the results of the first meeting, which was short but productive and significant for us, there was an opportunity to present the mayor a memorable gift - a gilded coin Sukhum - 2500 years old. For his part, he expressed interest and asked if the Government of the Republic of Abkhazia is ready to build official relations with Brazil. Next, we visited a number of plenary thematic sessions. Also, at the Congress there was an opportunity to see representatives of many chambers, with whom agreements on bilateral cooperation have already been signed, to strengthen the ties that already exist. ”
 
 As Tamila Mertskhulava noted: “It came as a surprise to us when we were informed that Mayor Marcelo Crivella wanted to hold an additional meeting with the Abkhaz delegation in order to officially present a memorable gift. Already at the second meeting, it became clear that he was interested in Abkhazia as a whole. Marcelo Crivella briefly familiarized himself with the history of Abkhazia, learned about the religion of its inhabitants, and also found the Republic on the world map. The mayor of Rio de Janeiro asked whether the Abkhaz language is really the most difficult in the world, as well as the number of tourists visiting Abkhazia every year. Asked if a sport like football was developed in Abkhazia, and whether the guests liked Rio de Janeiro. At the same time, Marcelo Crivella expressed his readiness to assist the Abkhaz delegation in cooperation issues that would be of interest, which would serve to increase contacts between the business circles of both countries. I believe that this is a significant event not only for the delegation, but also for the whole republic. Such meetings occur only once, and this opportunity does not always appear. "
 
 President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry reported on other meetings at the Congress: “There was held a meeting with Chairman of the World Federation of Chambers of Commerce Hamad Buamim. We had the opportunity to introduce ourselves and tell about our country, about already established cooperation with the Federation and that the RA Chamber of Commerce and Industry has been friends with its predecessor for many years. ” According to Mertskhulava, the Abkhaz delegation also met with the President of the Brazilian Trade Confederation and Business Association, Jorge Pinheiro. He was handed printed materials to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Abkhazia and was given a taste of Abkhazian wine.
 
 Tamila Mertskhulava summed up: “All panel discussions and round tables held within the framework of the Congress are an opportunity to learn how other chambers work, what new services are provided, then to apply this experience in the Republic. By participating in the Congress of this level, first of all, we were able to represent our republic and assist the business community of Abkhazia in expanding trade and economic ties. ”
