Estonia will share its experience of reforms with Georgia
Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves said that Georgia should continue to conduct economic and political reforms.
As the ERR reported, Ilves noted progress in the fight against corruption, as well as transformations in the economy during his meeting with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili within a working visit of Estonian President to Georgia.
"Successful state, which gazes into the future, should invest equally both democracy and the economic prosperity of their people and their land - in fact in the European sense these two principles are closely linked" - he added.
Toomas Hendrik Ilves also stressed that Estonia is ready to share experience in reforming with Georgia, as well as to assist in the accession to various European and transatlantic structures.
"Europe does not begin and end with the boundaries of a certain country. This concept is based on the following principles: democracy, freedom of speech, rule of law, separation of powers, human rights, human equality, social justice and an open economy" - has reminded Ilves.
Recall, that in addition to government representatives, during his visit to Georgia Ilves will meet with local opposition leaders and NGO representatives to discuss reforms in the country.
