Georgia's envoy warns about Russian market risks

20.12.2012 (Hvino News) Zurab Abashidze, Georgia's Special Representative for Relations with Russia, said at recent press conference, that "There is a danger that Russian market will be closed and businesses should decide themselves whether it is worth getting back there or not".

According to Mr. Abashidze, the government cannot give political guarantees to businessmen in this regard.

"I know that wine-makers and businessmen associations addressed Russia’s Chief Sanitarian, confirming readiness for resuming export of wines and mineral waters, though we are now expecting more concrete and detailed replies to letters sent to Moscow", Zurab Abashidze said. According to him, restoration of trade and economic relations is not a matter of Russia’s free will. ‘This is Russia’s obligation, undertaken by the country as a member of the World Trade Organization’, Abashidze said.
