We have for sure invested in this undertaking and I am glad that thhe product is written on –made in Georgia. This production was also tested. We have studied the national market as well. Our Ministry of course, Ministry of Internal Affairs and other agencies may be interested in the production. We have an ambition and want this product to become the best and to be exported too.
