Recently, the Georgian Minister of Environmental Protection and Agriculture, Levan Davitashvili, spoke that this year, not only Georgia, but also many major European grape-producing countries, such as Spain, France and Italian countries, have experienced difficulties in harvesting grapes due to the delay in grape sales.

He said the government will not let farmers face these difficulties alone. The state will do its best to help sell the grapes and ensure that the farmers will not encounter delivery problems. At the same time, the farmers have to make sure that the grapes are sold at a price worthy of their hard work. This is both an economic and a very important social issue. The Prime Minister will discuss this difficulty in the near future, and the government will also issue measures to promote the grape harvest.
