Georgia has a major potential among Eastern European and Central Asian countries for penetrating the US market, Katherine Osenova, representative of the US trade legislature development program, told Rustavi 2 TV company.

Georgia is able to become a strong and valuable trade partner for the USA, she added.

Tea, wine and food product manufactures are invited by the US Administration and the US Department of Trade to Washington to discuss the export opportunities for Georgian products.
