23rd Kazakhstan International Exhibition «Tourism & Travel»

23-25 April 2025

Welcome Letters 2015

Ladies and Gentlemen, dear participants of the 15th Anniversary Kazakhstan International Tourism Fair – KITF 2015.

During the decades friendly relations between Georgia and the Republic of Kazakhstan were formed. Kazakhstan, as one of the most dynamically developing states in the Central Asia, is a highly important strategic partner for Georgia.

Culture and ancient traditions of Georgia combine eastern and western culture, emerging as a unique combination of Europe and Asia. Dazzling nature, diversified landscapes, the Caucasus Ridge, subtropical zone of the Black Sea coast, rivers and waterfalls, towns, carved in stone, resorts and mineral waters, historical monuments, towns and settlements, traditional hospitality and well-known Georgian cookery – this is everything, that makes Georgia a tourist destination.

Notably, that within the last years the amount of visitors from Kazakhstan in Georgia has increased significantly, that in its turn serves as evidence of dynamic development of relations between our countries, as well as the sign of high potential of tourism sector in Georgia. According to statistic data of Georgia for the year 2014 the amount of tourists from Kazakhstan has grown by 40%.

Due to increase in tourists' flow, the largest Kazakhstan airline company Air Astana in the result of diligent cooperation with the Embassy of Georgia in the Republic of Kazakhstan, has come to decision to open a regular flight route Astana-Tbilisi-Astana starting June 2, 2015. We are positively sure, that the route will be a great success, since it will facilitate the development of touring potential and awareness of our countries.

A vivid example of success of Georgia and Kazakhstan cooperative project and intensification of collaboration in tourism is a rehabilitation of Rixos-Borjomi spa and health complex, officially opened on January 14, 2015 in Georgia in Borjomi Gorge.

The participation in Kazakhstan International Tourism Fair – KITF 2015 facilitates development and strengthening of active business and cultural contacts with representatives of Tourism Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan and participating countries of the Fair. We hope that cooperation with you will be a significant step for the history of our countries, and will provide citizens of our countries with opportunity to make better acquaintance with traditions and culture of Kazakhstan and Georgia.

On behalf of the Embassy of Georgia in the Republic of Kazakhstan, I congratulate all the participants with the 15th Anniversary of KITF 2015 and wish all of them to align close mutually profitable contacts, work effectively and gain the success.

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Georgia in the Republic of Kazakhstan
