We proved we are a socially-oriented government - Irakli Gharibashvili We proved that we are a socially-oriented government - Prime Minister Gharibashvili said at a press conference, where he presented an electricity subsidy plan for the vulnerable population.

The Prime Minister said that an additional 2 billion 230 million GEL was spent for the needs of population over the past 3 years.

"We are not only talking, but we also proved with our efforts for the last 3 years that we are a socially-oriented government. I would like to remind people that we increased social spending, which was not an easy decision, but we managed to plan the budget in an efficient and reasonable way.

In particular, I want to tell you that 800 million GEL was directed towards increasing pensions for all categories. Allowances were doubled for the socially vulnerable, this cost 250 million. More than 400 million was spent on health programs. Financial assistance was doubled for IDPs, this cost more than 50 million.

We increased teachers’ salaries and spent more than 300,000 million to do so. 50 million was spent on school textbooks and school transportation. 265 million was directed towards agricultural programs, 50 million was spent on gas subsidies. In total, this is 2 billion 230 million GEL,”- said the PM.

He once again emphasized that adjustment of the electricity tariff was conditioned by necessity.
