"We should not ruin the pension reform we built together," - this is how the Minister of Economy Natia Turnava answered the question of bm.ge, whether the government is going to allow the population to get out of the pension scheme and use the money as they wish.
 
Natia Turmava says that the pension reform is a much longer-term initiative, while the pandemic is a relatively short-term problem, so the money accumulated by the citizens in the pension scheme should not be spent to overcome the problems caused by covid-19.
 
"Pension reform is one of the basic reforms, and we should not cast a shadow and discredit it, no matter what the problem. Pension reform is a much longer-term initiative, while the pandemic is a relatively short-term problem. I'll borrow the words of WHO's Chairman, 'Light has appeared at the of a tunnel.' We will be one of the first countries in the region to receive the vaccine. The problem is huge. However, we shouldn't destroy the pension reform we built together", - she said.
