This project covers two artificial peninsulas, and one island will be built to bring together recreation and wellness, sports, educational, residential, and tourism directions, and I am confident that this investment project, the largest in the region, will further bolster Batumi’s solid international reputation and Adjara’s economic progress. I would like to greet the project’s initiator and our investor, Ambassadori Group’s leader, Mister Keburia and his family. I would like to thank Ambassadori Group, because this company has already invested tens of millions of dollars and, without exaggeration, has created truly unique projects in various Georgian regions, including Tbilisi, Kakheti, and Adjara. And now we have a project that is unique for our country and the entire region. Thus, I would like to thank the investor. At least 100 million USD will be invested in this project-this is what has been announced at the initial stage-and 2,000 local residents, our citizens, will be employed.

Generally, I would like to say that this project meets all relevant environmental and safety standards, which is very important to Batumi’s residents, to the residents of our Adjara.
“Once again, I would like to thank Ambassadori Group, the project’s authors and initiators. This truly unique project is our pride and joy. On behalf of the Government, I would like to thank the group once again and pledge our full support.
“Today we need such projects, such large-scale projects, to be implemented in the country. The fact that the group has decided to launch and carry out a project of this magnitude reiterates that unique conditions are put in place in Georgia today.
“As you know, our economic growth is in double digits, while the whole world is facing enormous challenges. Recession is almost everywhere, but we have been able to maintain, above all else, peace, stability, and strong economic development. What our country needs today is precisely the implementation of projects of this kind, strong economic advancement and progress, and this, of course, will create more jobs, greater revenues, wealth, and will bring greater prosperity to our citizens.

Prime Minister’s statement on procuring new helicopters

Tuesday, 30 August 2022 11:57

We will sell the helicopter purchased under the previous government and intended as a luxury, and we will buy three new helicopters instead, those that will be useful for rescue and other operations, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili stated at today’s Government meeting.

The Prime Minister pointed out that negotiations on procuring new helicopters are underway, and that the Finance Ministry is also engaged in this process.
According to the Head of Government, all currently available helicopters are perfectly operable and in good condition.
“Mister Vakhtang Gomelauri’s Ministry is working actively on procuring three new helicopters. Although all helicopters are perfectly operable and in good condition, we always pay enormous attention to it, and we have had discussions on this issue. As you know, the state owns one expensive, luxurious helicopter purchased under the previous government for the ex-president. Tens of millions of euros was paid for this helicopter. We made a decision against using this helicopter by anyone. I also would like to underline that, despite the speculations about this helicopter being used in rescue operations, this is a lie, my friends. Of course, we had discussions on this issue, and we decided to return this helicopter to the manufacturer-to sell it, that is-and instead procure three new helicopters, the kind that will be useful for rescue and other operations. This decision has already been made, and now active negotiations are underway, and the Finance Ministry is also engaged in this process,” Irakli Garibashvili said.

The Prime Minister congratulates the Georgian people on the Constitution Day!

"I wish you a Happy Constitution Day!

On August 24, 1995, the Parliament of Georgia adopted the country’s main statehood document, the Constitution of Georgia.
This supreme law—building on the centuries-old statehood traditions of the Georgian nation and the 1921 Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Georgia, one of the most progressive legal documents of its era—lays the foundation for the comprehensive development of a modern democratic state.
It reflects a social contract on fundamental values, the common goals and aspirations of the people, also ushering in and protecting the rule of law, the rights and freedoms of each person, and defining the directions of political, economic, and social life—the Constitution is the key pillar of the Georgian people in the process of building a European state.
Unwavering commitment to and protection of the supreme law is the key precondition for civic unity, peace, prosperity, and the country’s stability and progress".
