Lezcano was impressed with all the opportunities available in Georgia, and after the meeting, he decided a business delegation from the South American country will visit Georgia’s capital "in the near future”.

During the upcoming visit the foreign business men and women will explore Georgia’s investment and entrepreneurial potential, said Georgia’s Foreign Ministry.
