For modern Georgia, wine is among the country’s top exports. Together with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the EU helps Georgian winemakers invest in better equipment, standards and processes.

A new EBRD video talks about the meaning of wine production to the country and the opportunities that free trade with the EU can bring.

In 2018 alone, according to Georgia’s National Wine Agency, over 86 million bottles were exported to 53 countries worldwide, an increase of 13% compared to 2017.

The EU and EBRD, through the EU4Business-EBRD Credit Line, support Georgian enterprises in their ambition to trade with their European counterparts with confidence by investing in better equipment, standards and processes.

The companies are assisted in their efforts to improve their environmental footprint, the working conditions for their employees and to offer their local customers services and products of better quality.

Beyond Georgia, the programme runs in the Republic of Moldova and is soon to be launched in Ukraine. All three countries are signatories of free trade agreements with the EU, the world's largest trading block.
