Itsik Moshe, president of Georgia-Israel Chamber of Business, objects to illegal penetration of Georgian citizens to Israel and offers specific mechanisms for problems resolution and proposes to abolish visa-free regime.
“Israel needs tourists from Georgia. Israel also needs several thousands of employees every year. But illegal migrants create problems. I believe visa-free regime should be suspended and a way-out should be found. We would like to resolve the issue by joint efforts”, he said.
There is much demand in Georgia to employment opportunities in Israel. These issues should be regulated jointly on permanent basis, Itsik Moshe said.
The problem is mainly originated form a lack of information. Israel is a country of law and both countries must respect the law, Itsik Moshe told BusinessContract and added that two Georgia-Israel business forums will be held in Tbilisi in 2017.
“I believe Georgia’s economic progress greatly depends on ambassadors”, Itsik Moshe said.
Ambassadors are able to invite investors. This year we will hold two business forums – in July and December, Itsik Moshe pointed out.
