Georgia has joined the world wine trade group (WWTG).
Deputy Agriculture Minister Malkhaz Akishbaia signed the agreement on an Argentinean town of Mendoza. The agreement enables Georgia to export products to the USA and Canada without additional barriers, the Georgian Agriculture Ministry says.
Georgian Agriculture Minister Baku Kvezereli noted the WWTG membership provides not only an access to preferential trade terms, but wider opportunities for drawing new investments.
WWTG focuses on simplifying trades in wine among the member counties. WWTG unites the USA, Canada, Argentina, Chile, Australia and New Zealand.
WWTG was founded in 1994.
