The journalists also spoke about the development of tourism in Adjara seaside region of Georgia, where the climate makes soil fertile, thus this is the best place for agriculture. The journalist also recollected the embargo imposed by Russia on Georgian product in 2006, which closed the major export market for the country, however, 9% of the country`s GDP today lays on agriculture.
