Looking east in search of investors
By Messenger Staff
Friday, December 10As always the Georgian leadership is fairly optimistic about attracting investment and is predicting economic growth. So far the country has almost exhausted its sources of investment flowing into the country after the 08/08/08 Russian invasion. But this time, the ruling administration is focusing on the eastern markets and is expecting investments from China and India. At least PM Gilauri thinks so and foretells that the Chinese have selected certain fields which could become profitable including hydro energy and constructing shopping malls. The Ministry for Energy, Khetaguri, thinks that India will also invest in the energy sector, in particular, in Hudon Hesi construction. India is also keen on constructing a metallurgic plant as well as exploring agricultural and medical tourism. However, so far these are only promises and hopes.
