DISINFO: Georgia should return to its traditional market, Russia, as it...


Georgia should return to its traditional market, Russia, as it is more difficult to sell Georgian agricultural products on the European market.


Georgia exported agriculture products worth 208 million US Dollars to the EU member states in 2015, almost twice as much as those exported to Russia in the same period. The value of agricultural products exported from Georgia to the EU almost tripled since 2010. Moreover, the EU-Georgia DCFTA entered into force in September 2014 and the customs duties were lifted between Georgia and the EU member states. This provides additional opportunities for Georgian businesses to gain a foothold in the world’s largest market. See bit.ly/1ps9W6i, .
