(MENAFN - Trend News Agency) Any organization interested in the Namkhvani HPP project can pick out its candidate to stuff the expert council on the Namakhvani HPP, Georgian Economy Minister Natia Turnava declared on Friday, Trend reports citing 1TV .

Turnava believes communication is a key that would build more trust and end speculations over the HPP construction.

Minister noted that up to 80 surveys were published over the project today.

'In a bid to foster trust, all the watching groups and experts will be able to entail in this process. Besides, one more issue concerns the land and why we gave it to the investor.
