Anaklia

Anaklia Deep Sea Port was to have been the first Georgian deep water container port with state-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment. In January 2020, the Anaklia port project was cancelled by Georgia’s government, which claimed that the owners, Anaklia Development Consortium, had not met the terms and conditions of the contract. The government plans to reissue the tender. The issue is embroiled with international, political and business interests.
