The effectiveness of agrarian cooperation in the issues of food safety and economic growth in the country
In this paper we discuss ways of cooperation in agrarian sector and it’s role in developing the field and stimulating export, based on example of small developing country, Georgia. During last year, using secondary and empirical studies, we have studied difficulties in Georgian agrarian sector, corresponding problems and different ways of their solution proposed to government by scientists. We also studied farmer’s positions regarding those solutions, because no matter how many laws are written in the government creating effective models for the development, it is crucial to have powerful teams who have great desire, knowledge and experience for participation and implementation of the plan. Unfortunately, today there is no such commitment. This is confirmed by the fact that all existing projects enjoy support, are existing farmers who have already had their own businesses and wanted to expand. Theoretically, on the one hand, it is not as bad, probably good; however, real outcome can be achieved only with the large scale effect; therefore, all miniagricultural lands should be involved in agricultural production. In this article we focus on how farmers see and approach different ways of cooperation, mass export and regional development. At the end, propose our vision how we should stimulate those people to get involved in modern agrarian production, which at the end will play substantial role in boosting Georgia’s economy by increasing both GPD and export coefficient.
