A metal plant will be opened in Georgian Rustavi under the Produce in Georgia state program, Trend reports citing Georgian media.
As reported, 9 million lari ($3.1 million) will be invested in this project.
To support the business, Georgian Construction Service Ltd received one ha of land from the National Agency for State Property Management of the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia for a symbolic amount of one lari (35 cents).
The plant will employ 140 people.
