TBILISI, Georgia - The friendly ties between Turkey and Georgia are bearing fruits in terms of development and economy, Turkey's President Abdullah Gul said on Tuesday.

Speaking in a business forum in Georgian capital, Tbilisi, Gul said, "Fraternal ties between Turkey and Georgia date back to old times. We place a high importance to developmental projects in such a political atmosphere."

Gul said Turkey and Georgia had covered a significant ground in terms of trade and energy cooperation. Turkey's one billion dollars of investments on hydroelectric power plants in Georgia are a good example of this, he said.

The Turkish president also greeted the increased cooperation framework between Georgia and the European Union with a comprehensive free trade agreement as part of EU’s Eastern Partnership Program.
