Tourists have appeared a burden to Adjara
Recently Adjara felt a lack of agricultural raw production. According to the "Business-Georgia, this situation was caused by the large influx of tourists in the republic, which this year hopes to increase its visitors to about 800,000 people.
According to the statement of Ministry of Agriculture of Adjara, the country can not meet the needs of the four hundred thousandth of the population of the republic and of the number of tourists by its own economy.
As it was noted in an interview with Minister of Agriculture Donara Surmanidze, in Adjara this year there will operate a special program to help local farmers to transport their products to Batumi and to other regional centers, ensuring tourists with agricultural goods. Also there was planned opening of new agricultural markets, and new agricultural warehouses. In addition, there will be products, delivered from neighboring countries.
