Ambassador's Welcome Speech

Georgia and Malaysia established diplomatic relations in 1993, and have enjoyed a growing and mutually beneficial cooperation ever since. The establishment of a resident diplomatic mission of Georgia in Kuala Lumpur in 2013 reflects the increasing significance of this relationship to the Georgian government and its people.

The main priorities of our service in Malaysia mirror the purpose of any diplomatic mission overseas: we will endeavor to promote the national interests of Georgia and to protect the rights of its citizens. However, we regard it as equally important to encourage and further develop the bilateral ties between our two countries, particularly in the areas of business, politics and culture. Georgia and Malaysia lie far away from each other in terms of geography. Yet, we have a lot in common: thousands of years of rich history, affinity to culture and tradition, a strong sense of national dignity, and an enduring will for freedom and democracy that has been tested repeatedly by political turmoil.

It has not been long since Georgia set forth on its steady path to successful democratic, administrative and economic reforms. However, in the short period since regaining its independence, Georgia managed to markedly improve its international standing and become an increasingly attractive country for foreign investment. Georgia is now one of the most appealing and advantageous countries for foreign investments in the sectors of energy, agriculture, infrastructure and tourism, among others.

It is my honor and privilege to serve as the first Ambassador of Georgia to Malaysia. This webpage is designed to provide a reliable source of information about Georgia in key areas of interest, such as politics, economy, history, culture and tourism. We are grateful for the time you choose to devote to it.

Do not hesitate to address us with questions and suggestions on its contents.

 

Best wishes,

 

Nikoloz Apkhazava
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Georgia
