Natia Turnava on Need for Deep Sea Port

Natia Turnava, the candidate for the post of the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia, has pointed out the importance and necessity of a deep sea port for the country at today’s committee hearing in Parliament.

“Such high growth in container shipping once again shows that there are all the prospects necessary for developing our port infrastructure even faster. The country has long needed a deep sea port. We are doing our best to ensure that this project is implemented and supported. We are looking forward to the moves of the investors involved in this project,” Turnava said.

The Minister added that container shipping in January-August grew by 37% compared to the same period of last year, which was the highest indicator in the last decade.

“Nowadays, Georgia is really transforming into a regional transport hub. Working on the trans-European transport network and integration of the country’s transit systems into the network will continue. This is a project that brings us closer to Europe. In response to the challenges in the field of transport and the development of the transit corridor, we are planning to digitize the transit corridor through Georgia with our partner countries. This means not only the physical existence of the infrastructure but also a high-tech model of management, which will further increase the attractiveness of our corridor,” Turnava said.
