An event that summarized business sector results for the year 2013 was held by the Union of Oil Exporters on February 14, 2014.
According to event organizer’s notice Mr. Vano Mtvralashvili, such business meetings have become a tradition. This was the ninth time this meeting was held.
Based on the statistical data provided, the public was informed about the companies that have worked hard all year to contribute to the country's economy. Of paramount importance, were the paid amounts to the state budget, the investments made, and the number of people who were employed during the year.
Representatives of government agencies, diplomatic missions, international and non-governmental organizations, Georgian oil companies, as well as foreign companies attended the event. Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure of Georgia Mr. David Narmania, as well as the Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce and other notable figures in the business community presented diplomas and prizes to the winners of the major oil companies. Black Sea Terminal was awarded for the fifth time in the event’s existence. It received awards in various nominations. The company received the first award in 2009.
This year’s award is especially important for our company, as we received it for our contribution to the development of Georgia’s economy. Obviously this is a key indicator for the determination of the efficiency level of the investments made by the company. Black Sea Terminal LLC transfers a considerable amount of money to the state budget, participates in various infrastructural projects, social programs, and has a big role in fulfilling the Employment Program supported by the Georgian Government.
Black Sea Terminal is the one of the active members of a large family created by Azeri companies based in Georgia. As a result of BST’s cultural activity, the company has established and strengthened economic and political ties between the two neighboring countries.
