Saakashvili sells native land2011-09-09 19:50
The government of Georgia keeps raising funds to finance its mega-important projects. Apparently, Boers from South Africa, invited to revive the country's agriculture, won't be enough. Papuna Davitaya, minister for diaspora issues, is now on an official visit to the Republic of South Africa to see whether all arrangements are met and that the real rate of economy revival is in line with national statistics data. But even if now the land will be transferred to foreigners what will Georgians do? The government of Sakartvelo doesn't look ready to give a reply.
look ready to give a reply.
At the end of last year Bakur Kvezereli, minister of agriculture, that almost lost his job because of discontent among parliamentarians, communicated good news to his compatriots. The number of jobs for Georgians will be cut. Sakartvelo's rich soils, now standing idle without seeds and crops, will be given to African families. But not to ordinary ones. These are not black Africans released from the burden of apartheid some time ago - these are white Boers - successors of Dutch, French and German colonists from South Africa. The government of the RSA makes them transfer 30% of their lands to black citizens on a non-repayable basis. And here is Georgia proposing preferential terms for working in Caucasian agriculture - winemaking and cattle breeding.
Upon signature of the memorandum the delegation of Transvaal farmers arrived in Sakartvelo for a thorough inspection of proposed lands and meetings with officials as well as familiarization of the general situation in the republic. Naturally, they were most concerned over security. As a result of ethnic conflicts nearly 3,000 white Boers were killed in South Africa. But interior minister Vano Merabishvili reassured future investors. After all, he's the one who knows well how to cope with emergencies. He was quick to pass from words to actions demonstrating efficient work of Georgian police and no bureaucracy. As a result, in 10 minutes' time farmers got Georgian driving licenses of the international standard as well as name plates as a present from the minister that remarked that the entire process will take 3 months in the republic of South Africa.
