"We will make every effort to resume the economic relations. We believe that in present-day circumstances Russia and Georgia can exchange trade representative offices", Khubutia said and mentioned that this point will be included into the Union's address to Russian and Georgian authorities.
According to Khubutia, at present day the main questions to be solved are embargo on Georgian wine, mineral water and agricultural production, absence of transport connection between Russia and Georgia and visa provision problems.
"The embargo on Georgian wine, laid in 2006, resulted for Georgia in the loss of more than USD 40 mln. Before the announcement of the embargo, the major part of Georgian wine was exported to Russia: 80 per cent of all wine and over 90 per cent of cognac", Khubutia said - RIA Novosti.
