Hungary, Georgia agriculture cooperation has vast opportunities, says minister

Hungarian Agriculture Minister Istvan Nagy has held talks with Otar Shamugia, his Georgian counterpart, in Tbilisi and they signed a cooperation agreement in seed grain farming, winery and honey production, the ministry said on Monday.

The two ministers were in agreement that bilateral cooperation was offering vast opportunities for both countries. Hungary can serve as a gateway for Georgia to Europe while a partnership with Georgia can pave the way for Hungary to the East, the ministry said in a statement.

The agreement is for the cultivation of Hungarian seeds in Georgia and joint projects in viticulture, winemaking, vegetable and fruit production and honey making, it said.
