    Garibashvili sums up his work as PM

    Irakli Garibashvili shared the results of his first year as the head of the Georgian government. In his speech, he pointed out the growth of pensions, economic development, social and other projects.

    The prime minister addressed the audience at the Biltmore Hotel. Ministers, the public figures and the members of the ruling Georgian Dream party came to listen to the prime minister's speech.

    Garibashvili focused on solving two main problems of Georgia - poverty and unemployment.

    "Poverty and unemployment remain the main challenges for us," Sputnik Georgia quotes him as saying.

    The head of government noted the efforts of the cabinet of ministers and doctors in the fight against coronavirus, and also expressed dissatisfaction with the low rates of vaccination.

    "To date, more than 2 m vaccinations were administered and more than a million people were vaccinated, but this is not enough. Therefore, I want to urge the population for vaccination,” he said.

    He also mentioned a new government initiative on the employment of socially unprotected people developed in the framework of the elimination of unemployment and poverty.

    "One of the main problems today is social policy, which encourages unemployment and inaction of nearly 300,000 citizens who have the status of socially unprotected," Garibashvili said.

    According to the head of government, the employment of citizens will reduce the number of people living on allowances and will make it possible to reduce unemployment rates.

    In conclusion, the prime minister informed about new projects that will be implemented in Georgia next year: expansion of the road construction, new programs for villages and entrepreneurs and development of scientific direction.
