Agriculture minister unaware of grape-processing plant project in Kakheti financed by Russians

20.09.2013 (Hvino News) In the framework of this year's vintage campaign Rtveli 2013,  49 thousand tons of grapes have been delivered. As Minister of Agriculture  Shalva Pipia said, in total 67 private companies are involved in the harvesting process, last week the vintage moved into its active phase. 4000 - 4 00 tons of grapes are delivered daily.

"The interest from companies is very high. Preferential agrocredit program - namely the "fifth component" - proved itself to be justified"- says Mr. Pipia. According to him, a total of 42 million GEL  have been approved for companies within the fifth component.

As for Russian investors’ plans to build the grape-processing plant in Kakheti, announced by director of the Coordinating Centre of International Investment [CCII] George Seturidze, Shalva Pipia states that Russian investors have  not applied to the ministry on this issue and if the interest arises, the ministry will only support this idea.
