The construction of Anaklia’s new container port at Georgia’s Black Sea coast as a strategic trading point of the new Silk Road gives rise to high expectations regarding the country’s economic prospects.

Highlighting the repercussions for both the initiator of the port’s consortium and Anaklia’s citizens, the film portrays how the revived trading route affects Georgia’s society and economy. Will this strategic connection to the global trading network help the small and poor country to become an important economic player?

This documentary will follow the construction of the port for the next two-and-a-half years until the first vessel reaches the new harbor, scheduled for the end of 2020.  

Since the Asian Development Bank offered 100 billion dollars for investments in the region for infrastructure projects to revive the historic Silk Road, a new gold rush mentality has spread all over Central Asia and the Caucasus.

This is, where Mamuka Khazaradze comes into the game, one of the principal partners and masterminds behind the consortium developing the port, whose main task is to find further international partners and investors, as for the economically poor country it is impossible to finance the port with Chinese loans only.

This long-term documentary exemplifies chances and obstacles connected with the new Silk Road. It will give the audience a close look behind the scenes of one the big infrastructure projects of our time.

The topics raised will not only touch its effects on the region itself but also the economic frame of the Asian-European trade of the future.
