First of all, construction of multifunctional complexes by SOCAR and Visol companies should be mentioned. These complexes are the first not only in Georgia but in all Caucasus region. Their design and infrastructure keep up with similar centers in Western Europe countries, Mtvralashvili said.
He noted that new filling stations that meet all the parameters of European standards have been built this year in Georgia. Significant investment in this field, were made by Lukoil Georgia, Rompetrol Georgia and Gulf Georgia companies, along with the above mentioned companies, Mtvralashvili said.

It is very important for consumers because it is dealt not only with the price of products, but also about the introduction of modern standards of service.
