"I am here to present The Act of Freedom that defines our constitution. As to its principles, they are freedom, low taxation, the state's non-interference into private business and creating new opportunities for everyone", - Saakashvili stated, having underlined that the county ensured "the growth of economy by means of foreign capital and credits".
"We have carried out a serious reform in the public sector. It is very easy to start private business in Georgia", - he underlined.
According to the American president, his county "survived serious changes. 6 or 7 years ago one could hardly call Georgia a successful country. The government was not fulfilling its direct responsibilities. The people had a skeptic attitude towards the state institutions, while corruption was an organic phenomenon in the country".
"However, - Saakashvili stated, - now the situation is absolutely different. Georgia managed to build the model of a democratic country ruled by the freedom of speech, where "the people are the owners of their country". The head of Georgia told about "the social and mental transformation" of the Georgian people since the times of the Soviet Union when "the people were not used to independent thinking and could not be successful using their own capabilities".
Mikhail Saakashvili believes that the most positive change is "the establishment of meritocracy in the country".
"The state has transformed the educational institute; the police are using minimum force; our criminality has lowered three times compared to Russia, although in the times of the USSR, Georgia was the most criminal republic. Now we are close to being the leaders in corruption control", - the head of Georgia stated.
