The agreement went into effect Monday. It is the 15th free trade agreement involving China that has taken effect so far, and the first one China signed with a country along the Silk Road Economic Belt.

Officials with Shandong Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau said the acrylic mirror boards, produced by a company in Jinan City, were worth 18,525 U.S. dollars. 

The products will enjoy an exemption of import duty with a tax rate of 5 percent in Georgia, thanks to the certificate of origin.

According to the agreement, China will impose no tariff on 93.9 percent of products from Georgia, while Georgia will impose no tariff on 96.5 percent of products from China.
