By Tamilla Mammadova – Trend:

Several electronic platforms created in the framework of the anti-crisis plan have been launched in Georgia this year, said the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Natia Turnava, Trend reports via Georgian media.

She made the remark while presenting the 2020 report of the Ministry of Economy.

"We have created a business visitor management platform which despite the restrictions and pandemic allowed us to ensure the safe arrival of business visitors and investors. About 18,000 applications have been processed through this platform and it is still functioning today”, said Turnava.

Another project that Turnava noted in her presentation was 'Remotely from Georgia' which allows foreign citizens to travel and work remotely from Georgia.

Turnava said that about 1,000 permits for foreign citizens to enter Georgia have been issued within the project.

"In 2020 despite the pandemic, we continued to reform, improve the efficiency of our services, and create a more comfortable and attractive environment for businesses and investors", said Turnava.

Turnava also talked about another new program that was created this year 'State - Your Partner', which allows individuals to receive state services and information in 81 community centers and 24 justice houses in more than 100 settlements throughout Georgia about programs to help start or assist new business.

Turnava said that active reforms have been carried out in the privatization of state property.

"In particular two different organizations have been structurally merged: property management and financial services agencies, and now the movable and immovable property is managed through a single window", said Turnava.

Turnava said that this year mining deposits were offered to businesses for privatization in addition to other state-owned assets offered through the new program “100 Investment Offers for Business”.
