Georgia: From Silk Road crossroads to EU connections (part 2)
Date created :
Georgia is a place where East and West collide: a major crossing point on the ancient Silk Road, a former Soviet Republic and now one of the EU’s "neighbourhood" partners. Nearly 30 years on from the collapse of the USSR, around half of all Georgians live in rural areas, and more than half work the land to make a living. In our special show, we’re looking at how much influence Europe has in Georgia – particularly in the vast but simultaneously small-scale farming sector.
