Georgian Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili on Monday echoed EU Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi’s statement that the European Union would allocate €17 billion for the economic and investment plan of the Eastern Partnership (EaP), including €2.3 billion aimed at creating the Black Sea strategic submarine electricity cable between Georgia and the EU.
Papuashvili said” these are the projects that make Georgia a real part of the European Union and directly connect the European Union with Georgia.”
“That is a prerequisite for us to finally connect with the European Union both spatially and economically, and therefore, accelerate EU integration process,” the Speaker stated.
Black Sea strategic submarine electricity cable will connect Georgia to Rumania and will allow to export green energy to Europe. #GEOinEU https://t.co/cz8UHkHiDx
