 “Here at the last meeting exactly a year ago we discussed the prospect of building bilateral economic relations. At that time there was no diplomatic relations between our countries.

 The Minister of Economy of Abkhazia noted that the main task is to create conditions for business, and “further it is up to our entrepreneurs.”
 Ardzinba emphasized that “at the level of chambers of commerce and industry there is a lot of work. And in the near future, I think, we will be able to talk already about the concrete figures of trade relations between our countries. ”
