The construction of the plant was opened by president Saakashvili yesterday. Manjgaladze underlined that the construction of the power plant would reduce unemployment in the region as 1200 locals would be employed there.
`The construction of the Nenskrahess is a Chinese investment. Such projects are the models of reduction of unemployment in the country and it is intended for our citizens that they were employed,` Manjgaladze said, adding the pre-condition of such huge projects was the reduction of corruption in the country.
