In the near future, Georgian citruses might be exported to Central Asia.
As the Minister of Agriculture of Georgia Zaur Putkaradze states CBW, the Ministry is actively negotiating on this issue. It is assumed that the products can be transported to Central Asia in a ferry across the Caspian Sea.
“Our railway is actively involved in this process in order to avoid any problems in the future. I believe that this year large quantities of products will be exported to Central Asia, both citrus fruits and other agricultural products,” he said.
In his words, now the citruses from Adjara region are exported mainly to Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and other countries
