USAID’s REAP Program Continues to Contribute to Georgia’s Agricultural Development : Zviad Adzinbaia : Georgia Today on the Web

On April 21-22, the USAID-supported Restoring Efficiency to Agriculture Production (REAP) program hosted a two-day Enterprise Strategic Planning Program (ESSP) in Batumi to provide technical assistance to nearly 40 REAP-supported agribusinesses across Georgia. The aim of the program is to assist beneficiaries to develop competitive edges for their businesses, identify and resolve potential business problems and to seize new commercial opportunities. The training was attended by the Ministry of Agriculture of Adjara.

The targeted beneficiaries for the training course were businesses engaged in primary production and postharvest handling operations and farm service centers, which provide high-quality inputs and mechanization services to farmers across Georgia. The training was led by Innova, a reputable business consulting company and included guest speakers from leading private sector firms.
