The Minister of Economy Levan Davitashvili stated there is not going to be a delay for any consumer product.
Davitashvili noted a problem caused by the war is an increase in prices due to supply problems and this has contributed to global inflation, the pandemic followed by the war.
“As for physical access to products, there is no problem. There is no shortage of any product in Georgia and it is not considered that any product will be delivered with a delay. There will be no delay for any consumer product. Importing any product to Georgia is not a problem. We understand that Ukraine can not be an active supplier today, but there are many alternatives to Ukraine in the region,” Davitashvili said.
He noted that wheat and flour are being imported to Georgia from the market it usually came from, adding, “It was Russia in our case, but Kazakhstan was added to it. Given the geography, we understand that these two markets in the region have a competitive advantage in terms of price.”
