Prime Minister instructed Natia Turnava and Levan Davitashvili to hold direct communication with population on the issue of Namakhvani HPP

In response to the population’s concerns over the Namakhvani HPP, there are certain questions, which is only natural, and every question must be answered adequately, reasonably, and professionally, the Prime Minister said at today’s Cabinet meeting.

“I believe it necessary for the Ministers themselves to answer the population’s questions, which is why I ask Ms. Natia Turnava and Mr. Levan Davitashvili to engage in direct communication with the population on the ground tomorrow. Speak to them in person, explain the subject of their concerns. I also ask our Ministers to take part in relevant parliamentary committee hearings. Importantly, said hearings must engage stakeholders in this issue, and all questions must be answered”, - added Irakli Garibashvili.

According to the Head of Government, the Georgia’s energy independence is one of the key priorities to be upheld adequately by the country.

“As you know, the volume of imported power is growing by the year. Energy projections show that at least 100 MW HPPs must be built every year, something missing at this point. But we, of course, must find the golden mean, and to that end it is vital to maintain direct communication with the public, so that all questions our society may have are answered”, - said the Prime Minister.
