Along with USAID/Caucasus Mission Director, Stephen Haykin, on October 29th, 2014, I visited several sites of the New Economic Opportunities (NEO) project in the Mtskheta-Mtianeti region. Our visit to the region highlighted the strong U.S. economic support for Georgia and the importance of the agriculture sector to Georgia’s future. During my visit, I met local farmers at a rehabilitated agrarian market in the village of Tsitelsopeli, on the northern “military” highway. Thanks to USAID’s assistance, almost 70 residents of adjacent villages sell their farm products.
