Tbilisi, Georgia (PortSEurope) October 22, 2019 – Infrastructure Minister Maia Tskitishvili, speaking at the Tbilisi Silk Road Forum today, has said that eighteen infrastructure projects worth $3.4 billion (€3.06 million) will be fulfilled to boost the country’s transit capacity.
The minister emphasised the importance of increasing investments in logistic infrastructure, including modernising railways, expanding Black Sea ports and building the Anaklia Deep Sea Port.
Tskitishvili noted the importance of the construction of the East-West Highway in the country, and a highway between the country’s capital of Tbilisi and the large town to the south, Rustavi.
