"The partnership with Produce in Georgia agency is exemplary of United States Agency for International Development (USAID’s) approach under its new 2020-2025 Country Cooperation Development Strategy guiding its assistance to Georgia. Over the next five years, USAID will increase its support for private sector innovation, investment attraction, and linkages with lucrative markets, helping Georgian firms earn higher revenues and create higher-paying jobs across the country," he said.
