A new tender on Anaklia deep-sea port will be announced soon – Natia Turnava

The company, which had been constructing the Anaklia Port, has started dismantling and removing construction equipment from the area.

According to the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Natia Turnava, a new tender on the Anaklia deep-sea port will be announced soon.

“It was a logical decision to end a contract with the Anaklia Development Consortium, as Anaklia is our priority and we cannot allow any further delays.

As for the next procedure, it will be as transparent as any of the steps taken by us in relation to this project. We announced that we will start the new tender procedure very soon. The Ministry of Infrastructure, with our involvement, will review the terms and conditions, as they have undergone considerable modification since 2017 in favor of the investor. We think this tender will be successful. We are very hopeful that a new company will soon emerge as a result of a transparent tender. Of course, Anaklia Port will be built, this is our strategic priority and nothing will hinder it”, - concluded the Minister.
