Irakli Iashvili, the head of the goods transport company East Gate, has told TV3 that an increase in Russian investment after the elections is a realistic prospect. The outcome of the elections will be significant in terms of future investment.
The head of the International Investment Coordination Centre Giorgi Seturidze has spoken about the importance of securing additional investment from Russia.
