"It was quite a difficult project, expensive, but a really good job was done, and about 1600 families received natural gas," the Minister of Economy, Natia Turnava, stated during her visit to Manglisi Tetritskaro Municipality, where she inspected the newly built gas pipeline.
The State Representative in Kvemo Kartli Shota Rekhviashvili, Mikheil Shalamberidze, the General Director of the Georgian Gas Transportation Company, Mahir Mammedov, the General Director of SOCAR Energy Georgia, Azer Mammadov, the Director of SOCAR Georgia Gas, as well as local government representatives, got acquainted with the gasification results together with the Minister.
"This is a precondition for the development of tourist facilities and the construction of new hotels in Manglisi, which has long been a very good for summer, as well as a very suitable and attractive place for tourism development. Of course, now it will be much easier to create new jobs because we have attracted more investment in this settlement, and therefore, I congratulate all the people of Manglisi on the completion of this very important project," said Natia Turnava.
