A Good Opportunity To Get Rid Of Dpendence on Russia
Transparency International advises Georgian officials to seize the opportunity gained in the context of the coronavirus and reduce the country's dependence on Russia.
Georgia used to be heavily dependent on Russia for energy. In recent years, Georgia has been using new sources of energy to the extent that it has been devoid of Russia, but the country's economy is still dependent on Russia: tourism. Georgian wine exports and income of Georgian workers in Russia, in addition , imports grain from Russia.
Coronavirus has made the Georgian people experience a Russian-independent economy. Now that the government has abandoned liberal policies under the pretext of Corona, it can, by supporting farmers, be able to make the country self-sufficient in grain production.
The organization recommends that Georgia look for new markets for wine exports and invest in tourism in countries with good budgets
