Georgia does not like Bruce Talley’s Abkhaz generocity2011-02-25 17:08
Georgia is facing another challenge - the next wave of recognition of Abkhazia's independence, and the most unpleasant one. That's a true stab in the back: American investments are flowing in the former autonomy. American businessman Bruce Talley announced his intention to build a hotel in the republic. The fearless American is in danger of becoming widely known. Very soon his name will be mentioned on every street and the U.S. State Department is going to be attacked by messages about the Georgian law being violated.
Bruce Talley is an American entrepreneur who is very well-known in certain circles. He heads California Development Company that he founded; however, this American company does business very far from his native California, in the Russian Krasnodarsky region.
Besides investing in the economy of the region, Talley's company renders consulting services to those foreign companies that are planning to invest means in the Russian Black Sea coast.
It has been several years already that the American businessman has cast an eye far beyond the Black Sea region. He is seriously considering the prospect of investing in the Abkhaz tourist potential. Tbilisi has got a reason to worry. The patriotically-minded journalists have already informed their Foreign Ministry of the prepared economic "diversion".
In all appearances, Deputy Foreign Ministry of Georgia Nino Kalandadze heard Bruce Talley's name for the first time during the latest traditional briefing held every Monday. The journalists decided to ask her how Georgian MFA is going to fight the possible American investments in the Abkhaz economy.
Nino Kalandadze honestly confessed that she knew nothing. Still, she promised to handle the matter, reminded of the Law on Occupation that is about to be violated and of the measures that the official Tbilisi will undertake in this case.
There is one simple conclusion to be drawn from the whole story: Georgian MFA responds to national threats in a much slower manner than the local journalists, and Bruce Talley is definitely one of such threats. It is quite clear from his several comments and an interview about Abkhazia that the businessman is not going to agree his actions with Tbilisi authorities.
In his blog, American businessman gave a detailed description of the benefits of running business in Abkhazia and Tbilisi will hardly welcome these compliments.
