Kobalia to raise a billion and hand it around by one lari notes2010-09-27 15:42
Georgia's minister of economy and sustainable development Veronika Kobalia is seeking a way back to the list of public favorites. As we know, neither her blue eyes, nor perfect English convince Georgian citizens that she deserves the right to represent her authority in government. Grieving hard, the young "economist" made up her mind not to give up: now she promises to bring a billion dollars to the country. It's not a problem for her to get this money. One might ask how she will get it. Will she attach it to the underwear like post-perestroika shuttle traders did or will she enter the South Caucasian republic on a white goat with the jackpot fastened to its back?
fastened to its back?
As GeorgiaTimes wrote earlier, according to the public opinion polls the vote of no-confidence for Ms Kobalia is 32%. Vano Merabishvili, the embodiment of Georgia's police regime, has only 3.2% which is ten times lower. The problem is that he does not have a billion dollars, and Vera does. To be more exact, she assures that a money bag will soon fall down right in the center of Tbilisi allowing the businesslike minister to solve all current problems of Georgia's economy very fast.
The economy minister can be understood: she grew up in Canada so working with millions and billions of dollars - albeit verbally - is a habit with her. While Mikheil Saakashvili is doing his best to convince the population that everything in the country can be bought for one lari she is mixing up his game. We don't know if the Georgian president will put the mischievous colleague in the corner but there is one thing she should definitely do - set priorities. She has long been quite chaotic but now she seems to be losing her way in broad daylight. Her latest proposal is to sell Georgian Post to foreign investors. One might think this is an ad-hoc subsidiary of gas transit pipe judging by the high words she uses in an interview with a European magazine.
As for the notorious billion, among the destinations for its acquisition and then disbursement are the USA, Great Britain, UAE and Asia. Verochka, as one Caucasus expert says, with her little knowledge of economy, does not even realize what offers investors should get to line up to the zone of a recent armed conflict. Most probably, Mikheil Saakashvili will soon make her sell herself since beauties in government will soon become Georgia's only asset.
