"It is a success story. The country has achieved a lot since its independence, especially in the last 10 to 15 years. Everyone should see it because it is completely different from what I was expecting," he said at a meeting with Finance Minister AMA Muhith at the latter's office in the secretariat. Inaishvili is heading a business delegation from CACCI on a four-day visit to Bangladesh on the invitation of Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
