Georgia’s September Maritime Forum to be Held in Batumi

BATUMI, Georgia – The Georgian government announced recently that the country’s international maritime forum would be held in September in the Black Sea port city of Batumi.

The Forum will cover topics ranging from ways to assure open shipping lanes in the Black Sea, environmental concerns and the importance of creating an integrated maritime policy with Georgia’s neighboring countries.

The International Maritime Forum was created by the Georgian government earlier this year to promote the country as an emerging maritime nation and encourage greater cooperation between the countries bordering the Black and Mediterranean seas.
