Georgian government probably have to use subsidies
BAKU, Azerbaijan, November 17
By Tamilla Mammadova – Trend:
Georgian government will probably have to use subsidies, said Levan Silagava, head of Georgian Wheat and Flour Production Association, Trend reports via Georgian media.
“Unfortunately, the world market remains in a tense situation. The Russian Ministry of Agriculture has prepared a resolution, which imposes quotas even in Russia from February, respectably it will be reflected on the world market," he said.
As Silagava noted, the government will probably have to use a subsidy mechanism.
"There are three directions, the first one was used during the first wave, i.e. subsidizing wheat. The second mechanism is to subsidize the flour - or supply the flour to the bakeries at a certain price and the third is to subsidize the bread itself. It is now being recalculated which will be more effective. Which will be less expensive, since these are budget funds. Therefore, a decision will be made," Silagava said.
