According to Soso Pkhakadze, President of the Business Association of Georgia, “part of the planned amendments which should be made to the Labor Code is dangerous at this stage, because it violates the balance and excessively interferes with the business activities”.
Soso Pkhakadze regards that such interference might significantly damage the current business environment in Georgia.
"These amendments might cause unemployment rise, wage diminish and suspension of specific industries, thus it may result significant economic damage to the country, which would naturally hinder the country's development," Soso Pkhakadze said.
