By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

The Georgian government at its last meeting approved a state program to support villages totaling 50 million lari ($ 1 = 1.74 lari).

Funds will be allocated to each village, proceeding from the number of its inhabitants, in all municipalities of the country, Georgian Minister of Regional Development and Infrastructure David Narmania told the media on Feb. 20.

"The allocated funds will be spent on various infrastructure projects, in particular the financing of water supply, road reconstruction, repair work in kindergartens and so on," he said.

"The representatives of our ministry are in the municipalities," Narmania added. "The village meetings will be held. We urge local people to take an active part in this process to finance the projects required to solve many problems. The activity of the local population is important for proper selection of projects."

The Georgian Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure will analyze the obtained information. A decision on financing of specific municipalities and villages will be made on the basis of this data.
