“The program presented by
the new prime minister is of vital necessity . In the 21st century there is no
economic reality without politics
, so the new head of government
should build closer relations with
business that will be useful both to business and the prime minister, ” Lasha
Papashvili, CEO at Redix company, says.
Papashvili believes that the
government and local businessmen often spoke about the need for reforms, which have
not been carried pout by any government.
“The taxation of small
hotels is a problem that
been bothering the business for many years.
They work only during the season which
lasts 2-3 months, but have to pay taxes all
year round, ”he explains.
Papashvili notes that the
problem was discussed with the previous Prime Minister, but he resigned without
making any decision.
“Contacts between business and
government were minimal. It is necessary to hold more active and intensive consultations
between the government and business, ” Lasha Papashvili notes.
In the businessman’s opinion, a business ombudsman institution, which is
very passive today, should become more active .
