Thanks to the selfless efforts of the authorities, doctors and epidemiologists, and, most importantly, our citizens’ high social responsibility, as well as correct management, we have kept Georgia on the list of green zones, - Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia said at the 74th session of the UN General Assembly.

According to him, despite the difficulties, Georgia succeeded in dealing with the onslaught of the pandemic, as seen and unanimously acknowledged by the whole world.

“It is a great honor to have this opportunity to address you and share what our country, Georgia, has to say looking back at the past year.

This year, the United Nations is celebrating its 75th anniversary and, for the first time in its history, the General Assembly is being held remotely. This format is unusual and, one might even say, historic because the reason behind it unites us all: today, the whole world is fighting against a common invisible enemy, the COVID-19 pandemic.

Human lives, irrespective of the region or level of living, are facing a common threat and the fight against this threat has eclipsed some of the challenges that have been on the UN agenda for decades; though, in some cases, it has brought some of the problems further to the fore.

All of us, states of different capacities, have found ourselves facing a completely new and more complex challenge.

Despite the difficulties, we have succeeded in dealing with the onslaught of the pandemic in Georgia, as seen and unanimously acknowledged by the whole world”, said the Prime Minister.

The PM thanked the United States, the European Union, and international financial institutions whose assistance proved to be of paramount importance in tackling the first wave of the pandemic.

“I am proud that despite the pandemic, the 112th Session of the Executive Council of the World Tourism Organization was held in our country just a few days ago. I would like to thank our friend countries—the United States, the European Union, and international financial institutions whose assistance proved to be of paramount importance in tackling the first wave of the pandemic”, said the PM.
