Georgian PM to CNBC: Georgia’s Regional Economic Role Substantial

Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili has talked to CNBC News during his visit to the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Throughout the interview the PM emphasized a number of reasons why the South Caucasus, in particular Georgia, will have a substantial economic role in a wider sense during the next decade.

According to the PM, Georgia is strategically located between Europe and Asia and it is the gateway between the two continents.

“The Silk Road Project brings a new dynamic from Europe to Asia and vice versa.”

The Prime Minister said that Europe needs new drives for growth and Georgia is definitely the place that could link the two continents.

Kvirikashvili also underscored some important projects in Georgia, such as infrastructure modernization, including the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway project, deep Sea Port construction in Anaklia (Western Georgia) and some large scale projects in the hydropower sector.
