10 billion GEL and 2,500 projects: Major infrastructural development ahead for Georgia
Thursday, April 13During the next three years, Georgia will implement 2,500 major infrastructural projects worth 10 billion GEL in order to modernise infrastructural development in the country.
Building a 1,000 km road, providing a water supply for 500,000 people, solving the problem of solid waste and landfills in the country are some of the tasks that Georgia’s Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure will aim to complete between 2017-2020.
Georgia’s Minister of Infrastructure, Zurab Alavidze, presented the infrastructural development strategy of Georgia 2017-2020 today to government members and the public.
This ambitious infrastructural development plan will rejuvenate all parts of the economy to bring equal conditions for all regions of Georgia. Improving links between towns and villages is one of the major parts of the strategy.
“Our goal is to create equally affordable conditions for our society in all parts of Georgia… and what will the new spatial arrangement bring to our society? New roads, highways, new airports, ports, bridges, tunnels. It will bring 40,000 new job places,” said Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili.
The strategy implementation process will start this year, where 1.26 billion GEL will be spent for different infrastructural projects throughout the country. (Agenda.ge)
