Hotels and Preference Hualing Hosts Silk Road Forum Guests at Opening Ceremony

Hotels and Preference Hualing, a new hotel located in a new prestigious district of Tbilisi Sea, welcomed important guests for its official opening ceremony on October 14. In the framework of the Silk Road Forum, the hotel is hosting the Governor of Xinjiang Uyghur, the Governor of the Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China, Xuekerat Zakir, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Xinjiang Province, and the Chinese delegation.

The red ribbon ceremony was officiated by Irakli Garibashvili, the Prime Minister of Georgia and Xuekerat Zakir, the Governor of Xinjiang, both of whom made speeches addressing the Silk Road Forum and their future mutual cooperation.

According to the Chinese authorities, China considers Georgia a reliable partner and the main pillar in the South Caucasus region within the restoration of the historical Silk Road concept. Georgia will be the first country with which China begins free trade negotiations.

Tbilisi will host the annual Silk Road Forum on October 16th-17th. Silk Road is an initiative launched by the Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili, and is supported by the Government of the People’s Republic of China and the Asian Development Bank.

It is expected that around 700 guests from 30 countries will visit Georgia to participate in the Forum.

The two-day forum will promote the sharing of ideas, experiences and expertise by business executives and policy makers.

Hotels & Preference Hualing management coincided their opening ceremony with the Silk Road Forum, although the hotel has been operating since July and during the Olympics hosted the Olympic Committee.

Hotels & Preference Hualing Tbilisi is a 5 star property of the French International hotel chain, presented in Georgia by Hualing International Company. The hotel is a perfect gateway to clean, fresh air, a relaxing atmosphere and an exceptional panoramic view of the Tbilisi hills.

‘’15 years ago I founded Hotel and Preference in Paris,’’ said co-founder and General Manager of Hotels & Preference Group, Cyril Vaussard. ‘’I would never have imagined to have the opportunity to inaugurate the opening of the roof of the hotel in such a great international destination as Tbilisi.’’
