Georgian Agriculture Minister Levan Davitashvili says that there is no risk of food shortages in Georgia due to the coronavirus.

Davitashvili met the heads of the large supermarkets earlier today to discuss food stocks and the issue of price regulation.

Along with the fight against the spread of the new coronavirus, we are continuously working with all stakeholders involved in providing food to the population,” said Davitashvili.

Monitoring is carried out every day to protect the interests of the population as much as possible,” said Davitashvili.
