"This is a very important and large-scale project for our country. The new transmission line will ensure sustainable supply of electricity in the region and Georgian State Electrosystem will be able to satisfy the increasing demand for electricity within and outside of the country", - Sulkhan Zumburidze said. The visit was held within the frames of the Visit to Regional Networks project.
