and yet he is contributing absolutely zero to the project in terms of FDI - and did you see those new figures?
Donald Trump, a man who is ridiculed in his own country heaps praise on a man who is ridiculed in most other places. Where is the next funding going to come from - the EBRD? They were already deeply concerned about the falling level of FDI and it's fallen dramatically yet again and, if last year's "preliminary" figures are anything to go by, we could see FDI having fallen to the lowest point since Saakashvili stole Shevardnadze's tea.
Those figures are worth plotting now we have the latest figures in. Geostat can cook them all they like but they still taste bad.
The lack of domestic investment adds insult upon injfury as FDI shows no sign of turning around.
On a side note - I've never known so many of my closest friends hurting like they are right now in Georgia.The money is drying up or being taken offshore. I think I made the right decisions at the right time. New times are coming, I think we're on the right track in so far as the coming new economy is concerned - whatever that turns out to be - governmentless and banker-free I hope).
I'm amazed that Israel never figures in the top investors listing, aren't you? Or do you think they just move money the other way, through their weapons dealing and banking activities?
