Giorgi Gakharia instructed the Ministry of Economy to promote local production as much as possible

The Prime Minister of Georgia instructed the Ministry of Economy to promote local production as much as possible.


According to Giorgi Gakharia, in the context of economic programs, the main focus is on the development of local production.


“The Ministry of Economy has already presented a plan, which has received a positive assessment from the government. The main focus is on renewing Georgian production – for example, renewing the operation of enterprises such as Agara Sugar Company – as the structures of both demand and supply have completely changed not only in our economy but in the region as well. Therefore, enterprises that may not have been significant in terms of effectiveness some months ago, for instance, acquire a new significance today. Correspondingly, the Ministry of Economy is being tasked with developing local production support schemes, not just within the framework of the Produce in Georgia program but in other areas as well. This includes not only restricting imports but also utilizing various support instruments so that we can meet our domestic demand through our local production. This is of critical importance and we must start laying the groundwork for this today”, - concluded the Head of the Government.
