Georgian Prime Minister Nika Gilauri has called the main priorities of the government of the country for 2012. As reported by the GHN, at today's cabinet meeting, Gilauri stressed that the main task of the authorities remains a package of social assistance, which is already reflected in the budget for 2012. "Speaking about the social package we imply an increase of the retirement package from September 1 this year. You know that under the new law, this package was increased to 140 lari, which will be distributed to all retirement pensioners. It includes a voucher for the insurance and the sum", Gilauri said.
He pointed out that from September 1 all pensioners, as well as children from 0 to 5 years, will be insured. Gilauri called it an important breakthrough in health care. At the same time, he said, from January they would continue opening new hospitals and about 30 institutions will be opened.
"We expect the opening of a larger regional hospital for 70-100 berths in Telavi, Poti and other cities only in April and May", he said.
Gilauri said that this year the process of certification and promotion of certified teachers will be continued.
Prime minister also pointed out that agriculture remains one of the most important areas, and with this in mind the Ministry's budget has been increased by 30 percent.
Recall, in October 2011, the Government of Georgia submitted the updated strategic plan for the country development. That was also reported by Nika Gilauri during the cabinet meeting.
