Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze said that being a Georgian citizen he was very proud that Georgia would host Freestyle Ski and Snowboard World Championships in 2023 at Georgian winter resort Bakuriani.
“This trust shows that our international partners recognize and believe in Georgia’s correct, effective and purposeful strategy for the development of winter resorts,” PM said in Bakuriani.
Bakhtadze said that the development of winter resorts was one of the main priorities of the Georgian government; infrastructure development needed large scale investments and meant more tourists and additional job places.
“The 2/3 of Georgia’s territory is the mountains and represents a wealth of the country that has to be cared about,” PM claimed.
Construction of three new ropeways for 2023 Freestyle Ski and Snowboard World Championships will begin in Bakuriani winter resort of Georgia.
The agreement will be signed with the Austrian-Swiss Company Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group, the world’s leading manufacturer of ropeways, cable cars and ski lifts. The company will build ropeways on the territory of Didveli in Bakuriani.
