First, we closed the country tightly, then we opened it widely, - Keti Bochorishvili, the former Deputy Minister of Economy declared and assessed the quality of pandemic management by the government.

To her, Georgia has lost the opportunity to create a "Green Residence".

It is true that the government has created a program "Remotely from Georgia", but the former Deputy Minister of Economy believes that more activity could be done in this regard, because only 913 foreigners entered the country within the frame of the project from August 2020 to February.

"We missed this opportunity, if 10,000 foreigners lived in our country in addition, it would grow demand for the services and hotels. But, we had to offer a safe environment on the part of Covid-19, which, unfortunately, we cannot satisfy," - said Keti Bochorishvili. She added that "extraordinary thinking and decisions are needed in order to recover economy and tourism in the post-pandemic period.
