According to Asli, the intention of the opposition to start permanent protest actions since April 9th is dangerous for the Georgian economy and may lead to fatal consequences.
In his letter the businessman mentioned that considerable damage was caused to Georgian business starting with 2007. The situation turned especially acute after the August conflict and the start of the global financial crisis. These events decreased the flow of investments and Georgia lost many potential business partners.
Fadi Asli expressed hope that the protest actions will be held in a peaceful manner, but nevertheless, warned the opposition members that due to such actions potential investors will regard Georgia as an unstable country and will avoid cooperation. As a result, the economy and the people of the country will suffer, he underlined.
