The United States Agency for International Development Agriculture Programme, Enterprise Georgia and the Rural Development Agency of the country have launched a new programme to establish export market connections for Georgian companies involved in agriculture business.
Enterprise Georgia announced the initiative on Monday, saying it would aim to connect Georgian producers with interested buyers in Germany and Persian Gulf countries. It also noted about 80 export-oriented enterprises producing blueberry and walnut crops and processing food were selected for the programme.
As part of the move, a “large international consulting company" will work closely with the Georgian companies to help them formulate their export offer, the Agency said.
In addition, the programme aims to help the Georgian companies find buyers in target export markets and establish business deals.
"The programme will support dozens of Georgian companies and give them the opportunity to start exporting their products to high-value export markets", the Agency said.
