Turkmenistan exported $13.5 million worth of petroleum and petroleum oils to Georgia in October 2021, which is an increase of 206.8 percent, compared to $4.4 million over the same period of 2020, Trend reports via National Statistics Office (Geostat).

Meanwhile, Georgia’s total imports of petroleum and petroleum oils from January through October 2021 amounted to 1 million tons worth $651.9 million.
