Enhancing Agribusiness Clustering to Boost Georgia’s Sustainable Economic Development

PMC Research recently finished a diagnostic study of two clusters of two regions of Georgia - the processing and preservation of fruits and vegetables cluster in Guria, and the poultry cluster in Kvemo Kartli - in order to contribute to their development and promotion, which is beneficial for the private sector’s enhancement, as it can boost productivity and advance innovation.

We described both the history and existing reality of these clusters, analyzed business operations within them, developed cluster maps, and then elaborated short-term objectives as well as long-term visions for the development of these clusters, all of which can improve entrepreneurship and business sophistication by strengthening the capacities of government and local entities to develop and operate clusters.

Previously, with the same purposes, we also conducted a diagnostic study of two other clusters - marine fishing and processing, and preservation of fruit and vegetables - located in the Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti region.

All of these studies were part of the “EU Innovative Action for Private Sector Competitiveness in Georgia (EU IPSC)” program, which is a joint initiative of the European Union and the following four UN agencies: the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP); the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO); the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO); and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
