I do not think that there are many people like me who invested much energy and time in Anaklia deep sea port project while being on the post of Finance Minister or when working at Georgian Railways – Mamuka Bakhtadze, Georgian Prime Minister said during a briefing held about the issue and developments around TBC Bank.
“Quite irresponsible political forces are trying to link TBC Bank issue with Anaklia project,” he said and underlined that TBC Bank was one of the main financial institutions in the country that was vital not only for Georgian finance sector but also for the national economy.
PM said that Anaklia project was of strategic importance to the country. It was the vision of the government to make Georgia a regional hub with respect to transport and logistics directions and engage Anaklia in the trans-European transport network.
“Then I would like to ask, how can anyone voice accusation against the Georgian government and speculate that it does not want Anaklia project to be carried out,” Bakhtadze inquired.
