Georgia’s main “mama’s boy” finds deficit

2010-09-14 10:14

7467.jpegMore recently, Mikheil Saakashvili has been displeased with everything. Yesterday, on the government's visiting session in Batumi, the president came hard on...specialists. As he thinks, lately there have been too many of those who specialize in "international relations" while those who could operate a pick ax or carry bricks are none. Who will improve liberal economy building hotels, medical institutions and highways? Most probably, citizens of near-abroad states of the CIS Mishiko hates so much.


As an unknown author rephrased a well-known poem: firemen, police, government and opposition are all searching. Still, they have failed to find fitters for construction works now underway in Batumi. The country is facing deficit of specialists in all industries, except those meant for "mama's boys", as Mikheil Saakashvili put it. "Today fitting work was done in Batumi. There is no Georgian citizen among fitters. Turks are on Ramadan, so they'll be off for a fortnight. If Georgians continue not to know this kind of job, Ukrainians, Chinese, Turks will continue to come and build", - he stated.

No wonder, the Georgian leader is fingering his tie excitedly again. Not long ago, the demand for commercial space catalyzed intensive growth of construction market and deployment of construction sites all over big cities. Mortgage financing was immediately given wider possibilities in excess to customers' purchasing powers. Construction business is a priori attractive to investors, and banks willingly offer their loan facilities in this sector. The problem is that instability and tax system keep construction companies operating in Georgia from meeting a demand for new, modern apartments, offices and industrial areas of high standards. Thus, construction speed is not fast enough.

Earlier, related reports featured a drastic growth in construction works and a high occupational level among population. Positive outlooks were that this trend will continue. Now again Mikheil Saakashvili unsettles his country's statistics. His only hope is migrant workers, who, apparently, are eager to come to his call from Turkey, Ukraine and China and climb building cranes caringly sent from overseas.
