No one to open holiday season in Ajaria2011-04-08 17:16
Georgia's current authorities have chosen a strange way of bringing the country to the shining tops. It's always curious to see Sakartvelo's "know-how". Recently president Saakashvli was boasting that the parliament will abolish colleges and invite young people to parliament straight from school - indeed, this is the right thing for the country's prosperity. Now it turns out that the tourism will be developed in no less unconventional manner. Ajarian authorities have marked the start of a new vacation season by dismissing the department for tourism.
season by dismissing the department for tourism.
Dismissing all employees of Ajaria's tourism department in the run-up to the season looks more like a bad April 1 joke than truth. Still, the first week of April is ending and there is no other option than to take this news seriously. Ajarian authorities did make a strange decision to conquer stagnation in tourism.
On April 6 Omar Megrelidze, head of the administration of Ajaria's government announced that "the 2011 vacation season is entering an active phase that requires serious innovations". Basically speaking, all normal people introduce novelties in a quiet season when there is time to work and check these novelties. Holiday-makers are expected upon completion of tests - to avoid failures. But Ajarian government sticks to a different point of view: horses must be changed in mid-stream. As a result the entire department for tourism is dismissed under the slogan "all new for a new holiday season".
Now, as Megrelidze stated, the department will recruit "professional staff". A question appears: and who is responsible for the fact that the fired people were absolutely incompetent? And what are the criteria to pick up new employees to avoid similar embarrassment? Looks like the Ajarian government is full of enigmas. In addition to the employees of the Department, those who worked in Ajaria travel agency were also given the sack. As the authorities claim, they demonstrated extraordinarily poor coordination and inability to work as a team. Ok, so let's recruit friendly and responsible team makers and life will be fine. Tourists will come in crowds, there will be no time to turn around.
Yet, it is more likely that fresh "tourism masters", albeit much more professional, will have no time to get into the swing of work. They will look perplexedly at few guests that will come to Ajaria reminding of a timeless scene from "Alice in Wonderland" - "Alice, this is pudding. Pudding, this is Alice".
