The Georgian government plans to systematically register a total of 1.2 million hectares of land over the next three years, this issue was discussed at a working meeting chaired by Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia, the government press service said.
As Justice Minister Thea Tsulukiani noted at the meeting, the 8-month land registration system project, which will begin in the summer, will initially be implemented in several highland regions.
From the beginning of next year, the project will be expanded to cover all regions of Georgia. Over the next three years, the project will be implemented in dozens of villages across the country.
The meeting participants appreciated the reforms that have been carried out in the country since 2016 and emphasized that the area of successfully registered land has tripled from 2016 to the present.
According to Justice Minister TheaTsulukiani, these numbers testify to the success of the reform, and there is a willingness to take even quicker steps to ensure that systematic land registration yields similar positive results.
In August 2019, the land registration procedure was simplified as part of the reform. During this time, a total of more than 300 thousand hectares of land were registered.
