The next stage will be a transfer to the Ministry of Economy and probably President “, – says Shavliashvili.
In response, the Prime Minister said that this issue would be discussed. At the same time, the Prime Minister and the President refused to move to the residence located on Atoneli Street. The government will discuss the further fate of the residence on Atoneli street, – the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development, Deputy Prime Minister George Kvirikashvili said. However, the Minister did not specify whether the government is going to move to the Atoneli residence and may offer the building to the presidential administration. As for the reasons for Atoneli residence’s removal from the list of privatization objects, the Minister explains this fact by specificity of the building due to which investors’ interest in the object is low.
