This included guided tour of old Marbella, Golf at Los Flamingos and lunch at La Zagaleta. Natalie Stuart-Fox the president of EuroGeorgia said “ This is an excellent opportunity for both cities to develop both trade and tourism. Georgia is rich in culture, gastronomy and investment opportunities and is seeking more exposurein European markets. Marbella is the perfect place to promote to the Georgian community and Batumi has so much to offer a beautiful place like Marbella”
