Georgia goes berry picking
Sakartvelo’s agricultural sector is in a serious decay. Despite the task set by Georgian government, rehabilitation of tea plantations is going very bad, while the tangerine season in Adzharia has been officially admitted poor. But the world’s demand for blackberry has grown significantly. The whimsical tendencies have touched the post-Soviet space as well. Georgian Ministry of Agriculture is trying to keep up with the trend. Head of administration Bakur Kvezereli ordered to remove tea plantations and plant blackberries instead. Ultimately, the whole affair will turn cheap and advantageous: berries for eating, leaves for tea.
Pirates and Saakashvili don’t care about sailors
Here is alarming news about the Georgian sailors held hostage by Somali pirates. The sailors are given practically no food, hygienic conditions in confinement are horrible, and recently one of the captives was severely beaten. Ransom-raising through a special foundation created by Georgia’s trade unions is slow. In the meantime official Tbilisi imitates activity but has no intention to spend governmental and presidential reserve funds to save the compatriots. Do they wait to repatriate corpses, not breadwinners?
“Saboteur-show” without audience
Moscow has made an official reply to Georgia’s staged disclosure of a group of Russian and Abkhaz saboteurs in charge of a series of explosions in Tbilisi. As it was ironically remarked in Smolenskaya square, the Georgian fairy tales about the “external foe” are getting still more primitive. By the way, words of the Russian diplomats were confirmed by the reaction of the EU mission usually loyal to Sakartvelo. This time even Europe was full of resentment refusing to see any connection between Russia and the terrorist acts.2010-12-13 18:34
Georgian investment no-boom
Minister of Economy and Sustained Development of Georgia Vera Kobalia foretold once that the volume of this-year investments into the country’s economy will make up no less than one billion dollars. However by December, according to National Statistics Service, foreign companies’ capital investments in Sakartvelo made up a bit less than 197 million dollars. Having evidently realized that one cannot raise 800 million in a month and wishing to avoid another mess, Ms. Kobalia imposed the task of voicing her new grand plans on her deputy Irakli Matkave. The investment boom in Georgia is expected next spring.
