Key Market Issues
Russia, being the main trading partner of Georgia started imposing embargoes since 2005. It started with restricting entry of agricultural produce and then targeted the main industries like mineral water and wine. In August 2008 Georgia fought a war with its separatist regions, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which gained complete de facto control of their territories with the help of Russian forces. When the war ended, Russia proposed an arms embargo against Georgia, which is currently under review by the UN. This has restricted the entry of other nations to cater to the requirement by the Georgian Defense industry in order to maintain cordial relationship with Russia It's military power is also an important factor, as foreign countries want to maintain cordial relations with Russia. Israel, for example, which had been an exporter of arms to Georgia, stopped doing so when Russia began exporting advanced equipment to Iran and Syria, both of which have conflicting relations with Israel.]
Georgia's defense budget is small and does not attract many companies. The country's budget reached its peak in 2008, at US$945.95 million. During the review period, an average of 23% of the defense budget was allocated for capital expenditure on defense equipment. This small size of the budget does not attract many companies to supply arms to, or invest in, the country. The proposed arms embargo against Georgia further increases the challenges, as defense contractors might not find it feasible to violate the embargo to cater for a small market.
The domestic defense industry of Georgia is undeveloped and is mainly dependent on imports for its arms requirements. Foreign defense companies can directly sell defense equipment to the Georgian Defense Ministry, either through direct commercial sales (DCS) or foreign military sales (FMS). Georgia received arms from the US prior to the proposal of the arms embargo on the country. During 2002-2006 the country received arms worth US$77.5 million through DCS and US$82.2 million through FMS. Historically, FMS and DCS have been the most effective entry routes to cater to the Georgian markets.
