US to Fund Enterprises in Georgian Villages Along Occupation Line

The US Government plans to allocate $500,000 to help new enterprises in the Georgian villages located along the Russian-occupied territories, the US Embassy to Georgia reports.

“Residents along the Administrative Boundary Line need special support, that’s why the U.S. Government plans to provide $500,000 to fund new enterprises in the villages along the occupied territories”, the Embassy said.

The project will be implemented through cooperation between the Partnership Fund and USAID/Georgia's Zrda Activity, giving the local population the opportunity to launch innovation-oriented businesses in the villages adjacent to the occupation line.
