Georgia bans exports of wheat, barley for one year
The Georgian government announced on Tuesday a ban on the export of wheat and barley for one year, starting July 4, 2022.
Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili signed a decree on Tuesday which bans the export of wheat and barley until July 1, 2023.
In a statement on the Agriculture Ministry’s website, Agriculture Minister Otar Shamugia stressed the importance of making locally produced wheat and barley available on the domestic market due to the supply complications in the Black Sea region caused by the war in Ukraine.
Georgia could not facilitate exports due to its small domestic production, said Shamugia.
Georgia annually imports around 500,000 tons of wheat, while locally produced barley is exported to Iraq and Iran, according to Shamugia.
