A free industrial zone(FIZ) will be set up in the area of 600 hectares in the vicinity of Anaklia port and will create new jobs – the Economy Minister told reporters in Parliament where events are being held for the second day within the framework of the Silk Road Forum.
According to Dimitri Kumsishvili, Georgia has a very good law on free economic zone: it needs to be improved, but at the same time gives the ability to produce products in Georgia and export them to Europe.
“Hualing free industrial zone” will be opened in Kutaisi today. The opening of the Hualing FIZ will be attended by the representatives of the Infrastructure Ministry, Imereti regional administration, China’s official delegation and “Hualing Group” participating in the Silk Road Forum. “Hualing Group” has opened a 5-star Hotels & Preference Hualing hotel this week. At the opening ceremony Prime Minister thanked the company for the investments made in Georgia, which volume, as the head of government said, totaled $ 500 million.
Currently two industrial zones are operating in Georgia, namely in Kutaisi and Poti.
