Currently, the bathrooms of the second barracks are being overhauled at the base and a new training facility is being built. This year, internal roads will be arranged at the base and outdoor lighting will be installed.
One of the priorities from the time of the appointment of Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili as Minister of Defence was the complete renovation of the existing infrastructure aimed at creating favourable conditions for the Georgian military to meet the standards of NATO member states. For 2020, 100 million GEL was allocated, which was 4 times more than the previous year and about 250 facilities were built, repaired and rehabilitated. This year, this policy will continue and 80 million GEL will be spent on infrastructure rehabilitation and construction. With these funds, building and renovation of up to 100 facilities is planned.
