Georgian Prime Minister hopes to return Kazakh investments to country
Georgia, Tbilisi, October 25/ Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Bidzina Ivanishvili speaking on Caucasia TV Channel said he is actively working to return Kazakh investments to the country.
"At one time a lot of enthusiasm was felt. Many Kazakh investors were arriving in Georgia and were going to do so much. Suddenly all refused and left. We are now trying to fix it. I know Nazarbayev well. When I worked in Moscow, the president visited my bank twice. We are actively working in this direction and Kazakh investors will return," Ivanishvili said.
According to him, each year a million less tons of oil products have been transported from Central Asia across the Caspian Sea.
"We spent a lot of energy and reached the state, the president because otherwise we could not solve the problem. Georgia will return the function which was almost lost because almost nothing comes from Kazakhstan," Ivanishvili said.
The prime minister noted the transit is gradually recovering and the railway will be transporting four to five million tons of cargo.
"Transit will increase even more in the coming years and Georgia will transport loads from Central Asia. Ports and railways will be loaded and there will be new jobs," Ivanishvili said.
