Saakashvili is going to turn Tbilisi into New-York2010-04-21 16:50
President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili admired the activity of the Mayor's Office of New-York and wants to implement some of its achievements in Tbilisi. For example, some of the points are the public smoking ban and the obligatory use of safety bells in motor cars.gt-en-newsitem-inside
As Rosbalt informed with reference to the reports of the Georgian TV companies, Saakashvili visited the New-York Mayor's Office and met with its Head Michael Bloomberg. In the course of a tour of the Mayor's Office the Georgian president especially approved of the local work transparency: the heads of the city services and their deputies are located in a single open space.
In the opinion of the Georgian president, the officials cannot be preoccupied with the intrigues under conditions when they see each other. "We were capable of bringing down criminality but we were unable to reduce the number of casualties", - Saakashvili stated.
Yesterday, he remembered the time of his studentship in New-York. "When I came here, there was no other city as unhappy as that one. It was devoured by rats; the people were killed in the streets. It was sheer catastrophe", - the Georgian president remembered. However, "everything changed at once" and "New-York became one of the most comfortable cities in the world". Saakashvili attributes the changes to the merits of a good mayor and a good administrator.
