In May 2021, MTBS updated the business model and suggested the next steps for the Anaklia deep seaport project. In April 2022, the Georgian government claims that the project will go ahead. According to Levan Davitashvili, the head of the Ministry of Economy & Deputy Prime Minister, there is renewed investor interest.
The Anaklia deep seaport is meant to become a transport hub for cargo moving from Asia to Europe. Cargo would arrive in Anaklia by rail and be transported by sea to ports in the western countries of the Black Sea for onward transport to Europe or through the Bosphorus onwards to various Mediterranean seaports.
