Sakartvelo’s celebrity future2011-07-07 20:42
Georgian authorities by their actions have often caused doubts as to having got any real plans on how to rule the country. The official Tbilisi is tossing about. The basis of the state's wealth is said to lie in investments attraction and the next moment it is said to consist in agriculture development. But the favourite subject of the ruling establishment is tourism development. Besides, in the opinion of President Mikhail Saakashvili, it is the coming celebrities and movie stars who are to form the main advertising resource.
is the coming celebrities and movie stars who are to form the main advertising resource.
The reason for another speech delivered by the head of the Georgian state was the recent concert given by a well-known jazzman Chris Botti in Batumi, where the legendary Sting also appeared. The journalists asked the leader of the Rose Revolution whether it is not too costly to invite such famous guests at the expense of the state budget, especially that such actions have recently become massive and the financial situation in the country is deplorable.
But Mikhail Nikolozovitch assured the pressmen that the hospitable Georgia will many times open its arms to celebrities of various levels. "We are always asked why we spend money on inviting stars and on grand concerts. I'd like to say that we get our money back in the form of charity. Besides, this is the way we try to acquaint the whole world with our country... It means additional income and an opportunity to lease apartments; it is hard to find a free apartment in Batumi today. And the residents of the West Georgia may sell their agricultural products here, which also plays into the hands of our population", - he underlined.
"The appearance of the world celebrities in Georgia makes it recognizable for millions of people on our planet, thus encouraging tourism development", - Saakashvili declared proudly.
However, these words of the Georgian president's somehow disagree with his previous statements when he said that the republic's agriculture was not yet ready for the flow of tourists. Anyway, it is not ready for the high indicators that have been trumpeted by local officials. It is evident that the country's infrastructure is ruined - not only the recreational one, though this fact does not seem to bother the government of the state. The basic methods of ruling the country used by Georgian establishment include demagogy and attempts to promote their doubtful "achievements", which often have no grounds at all.
