Georgia, Tbilisi, November 25 /Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
Prime Minister of Georgia Nika Gilauri said 13,000 people will receive jobs under construction of hydro power plants in Georgia.
The official told the Parliament today that 13,000 people will be employed under construction of 10 new hydro power plants valued at a total of more than $3.5 billion in investments.
He noted that Georgia is the key electricity exporter in the region, which is the result of the correct energy policy.
Christian-Democrat MP Levan Vephvadze said though people are getting employed under construction of the power plants, this won't mean long-term, lasting employment. In his speech, the MP said the real benefit from construction of the hydro power plants is that it will lead to a decrease of electricity tariff and subsequently to the real economic growth.
