Incorrigible Optimist Saakashvili2012-04-03 16:52
Political stability in Georgia will inevitably lead to economic growth. This statement was made by President Mikheil Saakashvili at the opening ceremony of a new venture for the production of beer in the village of Saguramo near Tbilisi. "Georgia needs new production. Each such enterprise makes us closer to a better day and success, and helps to overcome problems of poverty and unemployment", Saakashvili said, addressing to the employees of the company.
According to the head of state, increase in the number of tourists in the country forces the authorities to intensify developing local production. Mikheil Saakashvili noted that Georgia has the potential to reduce the unemployment rate to 10% by 2015.
"We are not still Singapore ... but we can lay the groundwork to ensure bright future for our children. Day will come when we would finally overcome poverty and unemployment, so we must work very hard", Saakashvili said, adding that "Georgia will be able to catch up with developed countries after 8-10 years of rapid development".
The president stressed the importance of personnel training and development of engineering and technical fields.
"I'm not a dreamer; I know perfectly well the country's problems, but I'm not going to give up like you, since it's not in the nature of the Georgians. We are optimists; our economy and the pace of development give us the possibility to be so optimistic, our political stability is guarantee of our economic growth", the Echo of the Caucasus led Saakashvili's words.
Note, the trips of Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili to the regions are arranged with great fanfare. The audience for him is guaranteed - this is teaching staff and schools students. However, not all guests of the events, held for Saakashvili, get there on their own. Visiting the emotional speeches of President is voluntary-compulsory event. Refusal to go at such event could cost job.
Georgia is considerably more actively trying to shake off the effects of Soviet times and become a European state, than other former Soviet countries. But sometimes the result is quite different. For example, the frequent visits of President Saakashvili to the regions - this is really copying of the style adopted by Soviet general secretaries: cutting the white ribbons on the doors of the newly opened facilities, pretentious words, hugs, kisses, but the main thing - applause of enchanted audience to their leader.
