Economy Minister warns Georgian businessmen about Russian market
23 November, 2013
The government has warned business owners against planning entirely for the Russian market, Economy Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili told Palitra TV program “Ema’s Show”.
Kvirikashvili said following Georgia’s expected signing of the association agreement with the European Union at the Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius there would be theoretical risks of Russia banning Georgian-made products from its market in the future - like the country did years ago - therefore Georgian business owners should view the Russian market as an alternative,
not as their main target.
The minister added it would be “unfortunate” if Russia made the decision to ban Georgian-made products again.
