Georgia, Tbilisi, June 12 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili and Agriculture Minister Zaza Gorozia have inspected a new farmer service centre in Dedoplistskaro.
The head of state studied in detail to what extent the use of technology is available to local residents.
In total, this service centre can carry out 42 types of agricultural operations. Thanks to this centre in Dedoplistskaro 10,000 hectares of land have already been processed.
Saakashvili inquired about state of machinery and inspected tractors. He said Georgia must have at least 7,000-8,000 tractors to fully meet demand.
The President inquired about the availability of prices, and noted that the public should be able to get service.
Saakashvili also personally launched the project of water supply in the village of Kvemo Kedi. He was accompanied by Minister of Regional Development and Infrastructure Ramaz Nikolaishvili.
The President symbolically welded on pipe. He then talked to the locals. According to Saakashvili, the village was virtually deserted, what severely disturbed him.
He also noted that because of the terrain and the lack of water, the village was deserted.
"Not a village will be left without roads, and water. We aim to create in the villages the same living conditions as in cities," the Head of State said.
He stressed that the main sign of civilization is water, which should be in all villages.
