Saakashvili intends to tighten belt as well

2009-02-13 11:15

Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, hails the initiative of the government, implying cuts of administrative expenses.


At yesterday's presentation in the Parliament he stared that everyone has to tighten belts in conditions of the global crisis, but the government must be the first to do it, and the new PM started his work with this initiative.

"The PM started with the urge to all the departments to cut administrative expenses on 10 per cent. It doesn't imply redundancy, as the staff was reduced earlier, it was needed for reforms. It neither means salary cuts, as an official without salary is a bad official. We just need to learn to make less extraneous expenses", he said.

He also urged the Parliament to follow the government's example and stated he himself intends to tighten belt. According to the president, his official residence in Tserovani village will be transformed into a kindergarten for children of the refugees residing there. Two other presidential residences - in Zugdidi and Batumi -will be sold, money will be spent on small and medium enterprises support and on healthcare programs expansion.
