Chairman of the Executive Committee of reforms in Ukraine, Mikhail Saakashvili made an important note of caution regarding the growth expectations of the national economy after the lifting of quarantine restrictions, due to global pandemic coronavirus infection.
It is reported portal “Hvilya” with reference to the policy statement made in interview to the program “Cross-examination” on “channel 24”.
According to the former President of Georgia, immediately after the easing or lifting of quarantine restrictions in Ukraine, many people may create the view that the national economy has stabilized, the situation returned to normal, and it worked the way it was before the pandemic coronavirus. However, over time, will be the realization that the country simply has no money. According to the politician, the problem is not just about money.
“Yet now, during the quarantine, a large number of people do not spend a lot of money, but now they go to the salons, shopping, to buy some things, somewhere 2-3 weeks will be the impression that the economy is stirring and something is still beginning. But then almost all understand that there’s no more money”, – explained Mikhail Saakashvili.
The politician believes that all Ukrainians will have to understand a simple truth: there will be not only money, but also jobs in the country. Initially, most of the jobs are just not coming back, and one of the reasons will be the bankruptcy of a considerable number of small and medium enterprises. In this sad list will be some fairly large companies.
“If these energy is now mine stopped, to restore its technical work later. That is tens of thousands of people remain without work”, – said Mikhail Saakashvili.
