The 2018 budget for Georgia’s capital city Tbilisi will be increased by 60 million GEL. Chairman of Tbilisi City Assembly (Sakrebulo) Giorgi Tkemaladze says 60 million GEL will be transferred to the capital’s budget by the Government of Georgia. The funds will mainly be used for the implementation of infrastructural projects which were part of new Tbilisi mayor Kakha Kaladze’s pre-election campaign promises, Tkemaladze says.
"These projects include the modernization of metro stations and trains and the rehabilitation of historical districts of the capital," said Tkemaladze.
Tbilisi city budget for 2018 will amount to 875 million GEL according to the Georgian Public Broadcaster.
The Tbilisi Mayor’s Office asked this month from the Ministry of Finance of Georgia for an increase in the Tbilisi city budget, as necessary to have the funds to fulfill the promises made during the pre-election campaign.
