In two nearest years Tbilisi intends to lure USD 3 bn from privatization, Kakha Baindurashvili, the Minister of Finance said - Reuters.

Georgia managed to modernize its armed forces significantly with the assistance of the USA, but the country was defeated in August 2008 war. Though the volume of means for military purposes remains the same, their part in budget decreases [in percentage], as the Minister explained.

According to Baindurashvili, in the nearest two years Tbilisi plans to receive USD 3 bn from selling rights to build a resort in Anaklia and the railway, implementation of projects in hydro energy and privatization of state property.
