A survey was conducted within the framework of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Economic Security Program to identify challenges and prospects in Georgia's light industry sector. The study identified several important areas with real genuine potential, but also identified various challenges in the sector, including a lack of qualified staff, market access difficulties, and more.
The results of the study were discussed during a public-private dialogue organized by the Parliament of Georgia and USAID, where representatives of the legislature and the executive, the private sector and international organizations, together with experts in the field, summarized the results and discussed various ways to develop the sector.
Tamar Kitiashvili, Deputy Minister of Education and Science of Georgia participated in the dialogue and spoke about the role of entrepreneurs in training qualified specialists and the important initiatives implemented in this direction recently. The deputy minister emphasized that even a vocational college equipped with modern standards will not be able to fully meet the needs of the sector without the involvement of the industry itself. The current policy of the Ministry considers the development of the field with a shared responsibility.
According to the deputy minister, within the framework of close cooperation, the state has all the resources to provide the light industry sector with qualified personnel and thus contribute to the further development of the field.
