We have more than sufficient stock in the country - Irakli Garibashvili on wheat and flour stock

We have more than sufficient stock of flour in the country. Wheat stock is also available and we expect to harvest our wheat in a month or so. Thus, there was no reason for fuss. It was announced by Prime Minister of Georgia, when received a detailed briefing on the current position in the country.

As Irakli Garibashvili noted, fuss was artificially created and no problem exists towards this end whatsoever in the country.

“Industry representatives are requesting import duties to be introduced on flour, right? It will of course lead to a price increase on bread. It is neither in our interest, nor in the interest of our people - our population. Thus, I believe that this fuss was absolutely artificially caused and no problem exists towards this end whatsoever.

We have more than sufficient stock of flour and wheat in the country. Besides, in a matter of a month or so, we will harvest our own wheat. Thus, no grounds exist for a fuss, which was caused by a certain small group. It was a politicized issue, while the fuss was merely artificial”, - said the Head of Government.
