The bureaucratic expenses remain relevant in Georgia. Earlier, PM Giorgi Gakharia reported that Georgia sees no systemic problems associated with bureaucratic costs, and the issue is being discussed frequently by government opponents and economic experts.
Economic expert David Tsikaridze says that bureaucratic expenses in Georgia are 'unprecedentedly high.'
Thus, for "tightening the belts," the bureaucratic service costs should decrease, he says, adding the 'huge bureaucratic expenses' are a 'burden.'
"When PM Gakharia declares that bureaucratic expenses are not a problem for the country, this is a lie. From my point of view, the problem is the salary paid to the public sector employees. Perhaps, low-ranking employees have low wages, but those on high positions often receive tens of thousands of GEL,'' adding the Georgian people pay the vast salaries 'from their pocket.'
