Agriculture minister: Hungary, Georgia ties strengthening
Istvan Nagy and Otar Shamugia looked at unused opportunities for cooperation between the two countries, the ministry said in a statement.
This May, Hungary and Georgia signed a cooperation agreement on growing and breeding seed, fruit and vegetable production, viticulture and honey production, Nagy noted.
The ministers discussed building cooling facilities as well as opportunities for knowledge exchange between Hungarian companies and Georgian farmers, Nagy said.
Hungary’s top quality seed production is worth 500 million euros a year, he said, and the country is ready to tailor its produce to Georgia’s needs to improve bilateral trade, he said.
Hungary also supports Georgia’s EU integration and is ready for knowledge exchange for a successful bid, he said.
