Over the next three years, bureaucratic spending in
Georgia will be reduced by 25%, Finance Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze said.
Currently, the Parliament of Georgia is considering a project to optimize the government structures which provides for merging several ministries. According to government officials, the goal of the reform is to reduce government spending, but the scale of cuts are unclear at this stage.
The draft budget for 2018 doesn’t include the financial changes related to optimization since the draft reform is still under discussion. Exact figures will be known only next year.
