The Finance Ministry has been instructed, to issue this assistance before New Year – Giorgi Gakharia

Starting today, the Revenue Service accepts applications and citizens and companies (unregistered self-employed) who have temporarily lost sources of income should fill up the application in a timely manner in order to enjoy assistance before New Year. Such a statement made today the Prime Minister of Georgia.

“Today, we start accepting applications for targeted social assistance to citizens who, as a result of the last 2-month restrictions, have temporarily lost their jobs. We must do everything, and the Finance Ministry has been instructed, to issue this assistance before New Year. Citizens must apply to relevant agencies in a timely manner to receive assistance. The next year"s budget also increases pensions, an annual raise enshrined in legislation, so our pensioners will not have to wait from election to election to receive increased pensions.

Significant amounts are also allocated for constructing residences for refugees, 103 million GEL. I emphasize that, through the crisis, financing for infrastructural projects is increasing, and so is the budget of the Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure, in excess of 4 billion GEL. Financing is also increasing for the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Economy, and every other Ministry relevant to the country"s rapid post-crisis economic recovery”, - said Giorgi Gakharia.
