By the end of 2019, the investments in the water supply sector of Georgia will amount to 585 million lari, a spokesperson of Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission told Trend in an interview.
According to the Commission, most of the works under the investments were initiated in 2015-2018.
