Bakradze sent to the four winds

Bakradze sent to the four winds. 21426.jpegRealizing that the world's support of the official Tbilisi's current policy is getting weaker, Georgian authorities decided to arrange a grand tour to convince their colleagues that Mikhail Saakashvili is doing the right thing. Tomorrow, the delegation of deputies led by Speaker of Parliament David Bakradze is


starting off for Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. What kind of dividends will this voyage bring Mishiko?

The official purpose of a visit to the first destination point on the Georgian pilgrims' way, Singapore, is to meet with representatives of local business in order "to attract additional investments to Georgia". The authorities of the republic often refer to this country as to a model of their own state's development. For the first time it was mentioned by Head of the Ministry of Economy Veronika Kobalia a year ago. According to her, Georgia "should be transformed into a European Singapore as quickly as possible", which, in the minister's opinion, requires the elimination of unemployment and active development of agriculture and tourism.

Within a year, the situation never moved off dead center. After several scandalous stories with foreign businessmen arrested in Sakartvelo, foreign investors do not feel like investing in the republic's economy, so Mishiko's team decided to apply directly to their "example to follow". But then, Singapore should transform Georgia at its own expense, which is unheard-of impudence, isn't it? Singapore businessmen sometimes do come to Tbilisi where they are proudly told about reforms, Saakashvili's various achievements and "promising projects" but, in all appearances, the level of trust in the Georgian regime does not grow; otherwise, why would Bakradze and company go to Singapore?

The next stop on the way of the abovementioned gentlemen is Australia, where the Georgian guests are going to meet with Chairman of Parliament Henry Alfred Jenkins, head of the Foreign Relations, Defense and Trade Committee Michael David Danby and other parliamentarians, IA Regnum reports. This intention is even more transparent: the Georgians hope that the upcoming visit will contribute to the support of Sakartvelo's "territorial integrity and sovereignty" and the policy of non-recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
