Georgian Government launches new agricultural project

Monday, February 23
Georgia’s government has decided to allocate 15 million GEL to create nurseries and large crops throughout the country.

This budget will help entrepreneurs for the next two years, Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili said while presenting the new governmental project "Plant the Future”.

According to Gharibashvili, the project will boost the agricultural sphere and help people open new enterprises, produce high quality products and increase the export potential of Georgian goods.

"The project aims to use Georgia’s agricultural land to its fullest” the PM said.

According to him, the project will consist of two elements, creating seasonal crops and nurseries.

The PM said that high quality Georgian produce has a good chance to find its niche abroad after the European Union’s market opens to Georgia.

As Gharibashvili added, the new project beneficiaries will receive "qualified assistance” from a government-initiated scientific research centre.
