"Turnover of the Sector in December is up to 1 BLN GEL, including 200 MLN is paid to the Budget" - Tbilisi Central

Levan Karalashvili, Director of Tbilisi Central declares, that the turnover of shopping centers and retail sector reaches 1 billion GEL in December, including 200 million GEL is paid to the budget as taxes.

According to him, there is a problem of communication between the government and the private sector, so representatives of the industry must provide detailed information to the government- what will happen if the sector’s demands are not taken into account.

"It is very important that the retail sector has joined us, because the share of the sector is very high in this country. The turnover of the sector reaches 1 billion GEL in December, including 200 million GEL is paid to the budget as taxes.

The ministers of the economic team know well, if businesses do not work, the budget will not receive revenue and they also lose the confidence of investors who have invested almost 0.5 billion in this sector.

There is no talking about disobedience. We think pragmatically. If the government does not take into account our demands, we will be locked up, 25,000 people will be left in the streets and the budget will not receive hundreds of millions of lari, which is very critical for a small country like Georgia," Levan Karalashvili said.
