Consortium consisting of many partners will cooperate with the state in order to take into account the strategic interests of Anaklia port as much as possible – Davitashvili

Consortium consisting of many partners will cooperate with the state in order to take into account the strategic interests of Anaklia port as much as possible. Such a statement made the Minister of Economy.

“We have a constant dialogue with our strategic partners, I am directly involved in this process and they have complete information about the Anaklia port project.

You know that there was talk about one company, we also have another company in the consortium - China Harbor Investment, as well as several subcontractors, and we also consider the involvement of several important, high-reputation, including the Chinese international shipping line - in general, it will be a complex ecosystem, where a consortium made up of many partners will cooperate with the state so that we get the highest possible quality development of this port and Georgia’s strategic and commercial interests will be taken into account as much as possible.

The process of selecting a private partner is carried out with maximum responsibility. Probably, it will take several more weeks of dialogue to clarify the issues I talked about, including publicly, so that the proposals received from the consortium are fully in line with our tender requirements. If this happens, of course, we will announce the winner and continue to cooperate with them and work on an agreement”, - said Levan Davitashvili.

He also explained about the start of marine works in Anaklia: “The Belgian international engineering company, which is a consultant to the state in the construction part, is clarifying the details, which will take about one or two weeks. Within the framework of the Anaklia port project, work is being carried out intensively, and naturally, we want quality results to be achieved in both directions”.
