"May the coming year be a year of progress, success, unity, prosperity, and even more development for our people and country," Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Gharibashvili mentioned when congratulating with New Year.
The Head of Government highlighted the challenges and achievements in the country in 2021.
"We look forward to the New Year, and first of all, I wish this New Year to bring peace and an end to the pandemic on earth, so that people around the world can return to normal life and we can all look forward to thinking about the future, development, reconstruction, renewal, and implementation of projects.
2021 was a year full of challenges - there was also political turmoil, the pandemic caused obstacles in various directions, and moreover, there were many tragedies caused by the loss of people. Sadly, we have lost many of our fellow citizens in the fight against the virus, and I want to reiterate my concern for each of the lost lives.
But last year was also marked by success in various fields - our country did not stop moving forward for a single minute, and we had serious achievements both locally and internationally.
After a convincing victory in the elections, for our country to move forward and be more successful, we need a new approach to governance, which means progress and rapid development in all directions. This new attitude needs bold and timely decisions, and we will start the new year with this approach," Irakli Gharibashvili said.
According to him, next year will be the year of economic development.
"Next year we will create new jobs, we must reduce poverty, we will have development and progress in all directions, we must be able to make tomorrow better.
Economically strong and unified Georgia, a strong Georgian state, should become our main goal. It is possible, and we can do it! Georgia will definitely become a state like that with our unity, consistent and selfless work.
New Year always brings new hopes, and with this hope, I would like to congratulate our Abkhaz and Ossetian brothers on the coming 2022. I wholeheartedly wish this year to be a turning point in terms of rapprochement of our relations and for us to live together in a soon-to-be-developed and united Georgia," Irakli Gharibashvili said.
