Georgian Economy

Georgia cultivates food products like grapes, citrus, and hazelnuts. Although they cultivate these things, they do not have very much good farm land. They also mine magnanese, copper, and gold. In addition, they also produce alchoholic and non-alchoholic beverages, metals, machinary, and chemicals. Georgia's GDP per Capita is approximately $9,500. The only products Georgia really needs to import apart from certain types of food are natural gasses and certain oil products.
