Survey: Unemployment plagues Georgia
Georgia, Tbilisi, July 27 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
Most Georgians believe that unemployment is the country's number-one problem, the National Democratic Institute (NDI) reported this week.
NDI Director for Georgia Luis Navarro presented the research July 26.
Some 65 percent of respondents said unemployment is the biggest problem facing the country. Territorial integrity and poverty were also stressed as priority issues.
The majority of respondents also said that politicians need to pay more attention to social and economic issues. Some 59 percent said politicians do not sufficiently address these problems.
The NDI conducted research from June 24 to July 5. Some 2,053 respondents were surveyed throughout the country. Roughly 900 were interviewed in Tbilisi.
