The EU-Georgia Business Council issues one more publication for Georgian exporters

Tuesday, November 27
The EU-Georgia Business Council (EUGBC), with funding from the European Union has issued the next publication for Georgian exporters to the EU - How to Export Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Beverages and Water Products from Georgia to the EU Market.

This publication aims to introduce the existing EU and Georgian norms, as well as international standards on the production, processing, distribution and export of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and water products to the EU market to Georgian entrepreneurs.

The main goal of the trade facilitation project, implemented by EUGBC is to raise awareness in the Georgian business sector of trade practices, rules and conditions for access to the EU market. Publications issued in the framework of the project and intended for potential exporters, are in Georgian with an English summary. The project is aimed at providing the Georgian business community (mainly, small and medium entrepreneurs) with practical information on EU trade legislation, regulations, procedures, rules and standards. A seminar will also be organized to provide interested parties with an opportunity to better understand the requirements for trade with the EU.

David Kirvalidze, Minister of Agriculture of Georgia said: “The publication prepared by EUGBC provides valuable information and serves as a practical guide to Georgian producers interested in the export of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and water products from Georgia to the EU market. It is also important that the publication explains complex EU requirements and standards in a simple and reader-friendly way. The new government will use all of its efforts for realizing Georgia’s export potential as soon as possible.”

Tamar Beruchashvili, Deputy State Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration stated that “with these publications EUGBC as a business support organization successfully carries out one of its main functions - to raise awareness amongst Georgian businesses on trade with the EU, which contributes to the developments taking place in the country in the scope of the current negotiations on Deep and Comprehensive Trade Area (DCFTA) with Georgia.”
