Ana Sabakhtarishvili, Executive Director of the Infrastructure Builders Association, and Richard Rose, Leader of the Rural Small and Medium Business Development Project Group, signed a Memorandum of mutual cooperation.
The agreement was part of a rural Small and Medium Business development project implemented by a consortium of Swisscontact, Mercy Corps and Springfield Center. The project is funded by the Swiss Cooperation Office under the auspices of the South Caucasus, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
In the first phase of the project, the activities to be implemented include strengthening the capacity of small construction materials manufacturers to be implemented by construction companies through a coaching and mentoring system.
Prior to the implementation of the project, a feasibility study was planned to accurately identify the needs of the segment and the readiness of potential construction companies involved in the program to these processes.
