Mishiko has wagged his finger at agricultural academy. They answered OK2010-09-21 19:55
Georgian wine-growers and agronomists seem to cause Mikheil Saakashvili's irritation. He does not want an agricultural academy training specialists of the current level. "Either it brings up the standards, or there is no sense in its existence", - the leader of the country stated openly. His words sounded like a threat to abolish the educational institution; however, the academy management is sure things will be limited to combing out the teaching staff.
Everything seems to be good in Mikheil Nikolaevitch's country: policemen do not take bribes, schools teach English, prisoners are allowed to visit their wives and children, villages are supplied with gas bought for European currency. Still, there is a sphere where he is unable to paper over the cracks - the sphere of agriculture. No matter how many agricultural development programs have been launched, it is still fiercely criticized.
Where is the root of evil here? - the president has fallen into muse, being far from agriculture himself. Then he uttered the first thing that came to his mind at the formal opening of a German hotel in Telavi. It turns out that the whole trouble lies in the peasants' poor agricultural education.
"Either the agricultural academy brings the standards up, or there is no sense in its future existence, - Saakashvili is cited by media outlets. - Let the Academy show how many real wine-growers it has brought up. They are next to nothing, and we spend huge money on this institution; it has got a large building. We need a sound reform, for the village badly needs true specialists. Thus, let them remember that either they will increase their standards, or the institution is meaningless".
The accusation was late for four years. In 2006, the then Minister of Defense Irakly Okruashvili rebuked the Georgian wine-growers of slacking their work because one can sell even "fecal matter" in Russia. Russian market has shut the door for Georgian wines for a long time and the European and American markets make excessive demands to the products.
