Residents living in the eastern suburbs of Georgia’s capital Tbilisi are now able to receive pediatric and adult inpatient services in a new local hospital.

Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili this afternoon opened a new, 100-bed hospital near Tbilisi Sea.

The Prime Minister said residents of Varketili and Vazisubani districts of Tbilisi typically went to other parts of the city to receive inpatient medical services but this would change from today when the new clinic opened.

Kvirikashvili said Hualing Group invested 4.5 million GEL to build the new hospital.

"Hualing Group is a very important investor for our country,” said Georgia’s Prime Minister.
"And generally speaking, our economic relations with China are developing very fast,” he added.

The PM said the medical centre was equipped with all modern medical technologies and was of very high quality.

"This hospital, which will offer various medical services, is really an important project for this district. I wish good health to everyone but it’s important to have this type of medical facility close to where you live, and in this district there was no hospital before,” Kvirikashvili said.

At the opening ceremony PM Kvirikashvili announced Hualing Group and other Chinese investors were planning to increase their investments in Georgia.

"In the nearest future we are expecting a lot of investments from China. Today I’ll have a meeting with several business groups that are interested in investing in Georgia’s logistics and transport sectors,” he said.

The PM was accompanied at the opening ceremony by Hualing Group Director General Wang Shengxin and Georgia’s Health Minister David Sergeenko.
