2009-03-17 18:02

The Czech Republic is interested in construction of hospitals in Georgia, said Alexander Kvitashvili, the Minister of Labour, Health Care and Social Protection, at today's meeting of the government.


According to Kvitashvili, on Monday the Ministry delegation will depart for Prague for negotiations. According to tentative information, the Czech Republic intends to invest in construction of hospitals in Georgia over 125 mln euro within three years.

President Mikheil Saakashvili, who conducted the meeting, mentioned that owing to this investment the significant part of the "100 New Hospitals" governmental program will be implemented, the program will be completed with the assistance of the foreign capital.

The implementation of the program was started by the government in 2007. According to it, in 2007-2009 one hundred new hospitals for 7800 places each must be built, 23 of them - in the capital, all the rest - in the regions.

To assist the program the government offered investors to buy old clinics and hospitals and build new ones instead. The privatization of old hospitals ran intensively, but not a single new hospital is ready for operation.

As the PM Nikoloz Gilauri previously stated, the implementation of the program turned out to be lasting but in nearest future the contract with the Export Bank [the Czech Republic] will be signed, the bank will allocate a credit for construction of hospitals. The sum named previously amounted 100 mln euro, but today Gilauri claimed that the sum increased up to 125 mln euro.
