Lasha Papashvili The founder of Kvarlis Baga company in his interview with CBW reviews the last year and talks about private sector’s performance in 2015.
Our company is one of the best enterprises in the Region, but the current year has brought undesirable financial indicators after the GEL devaluation. The company is ending the year with losses. The solvency of our population has shrunk and that’s why the company bears losses.
“The current year has shocked both ordinary citizens and the major business. This year was a negative period for the business. We hope the next year will bring better innovations. I admit the capital flow is free in the country, the tax pressure absents and our country provides all efforts to reach considerable economic growth that will be immediately reflected on our company,” he said.
Absence of veterinary services is our major problem and we have invited foreign specialists and taken serious costs. This year the company has invested total of 4 million USD in the production.
In 2016 the national currency exchange rate will determine many tendencies. We plan to increase the farm output, but everything depends on economic realities. We want to double the neat cattle quantity to 900 ones this year. In 2016 the company will invest 10 million USD”.
