Zhvania hopes Turkey will impede work of Benetton shop in Sokhumi

2009-05-28 10:19

At today's briefing Lasha Zhvania, the Minister of Economic Development of Georgia, said that in telephone talk with the representative of the Turkish State Minister's office he had expressed worry in connection with the decision of the Turkish representative office of Benetton to open a shop in Sokhumi - Business Gruzia.


According to the Minister, any commercial activity in Abkhazia and South Ossetia is prohibited, as these regions are denoted as "occupied territories" by the Georgian law.

Though the state cannot interfere in the activities of the private industry, Zhvania hopes the Turkish side will take adequate measures to suppress the activities of the Turkish company, contradicting the national interest of Georgia.

A shop of the Turkish representative office of Benetton was opened in Sokhumi. Yesterday four Benetton shops in Tbilisi stopped work for indefinite time as a protest of their partner from Turkey opened the shop of the same brand without accordance with the Georgian side.
