Saakashvili’s industrialization in Stalin’s style

2010-09-08 14:54

"Earlier it was possible to buy 1 ha of land for GEL 440. From next year on, the price is GEL 880. Given poor harvest, droughts, and general price growth, these circumstances will be a heavy blow to farmers", - Gonashvili is quoted by Business Georgia.

The state's slapdash attitude to farm enterprises may result in 90% of land remaining uncultivated next year. Even now, when the planet was struck by a series of large-scale natural disasters, Georgia acutely felt the value of food security.


The agricultural country failed to stop inflation even for the products grown at home. Gruzstat reports that production of agricultural goods has gone down, particularly in cattle breeding. Over the second quarter meat output was 10,000 tons versus 14,000 tons in summer 2009. Dairy and egg production was also lower.

The fruit crops will be twice lower than last year because of rainfalls and floods, the specialists predict.

Paata Koguashvili, an expert, keeps repeating that Georgia is losing food independence. Is Mikheil Saakashvili concerned about it? - Yes, verbally. He likes speaking about the ways he supports the agricultural sector with state programs. For the time being one hand buys equipment and opens farm consulting centers while the other hand of the government is choking agriculture selling the dearest asset Georgian farmers have - their native land - to investors.
