Georgia's Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili has said that the occupied territories of the country have great development potential.
"The budget of occupied Abkhazia is only 200 million dollars, their budget is fully subsidized. I want to say that for our Abkhazian and Ossetian sisters and brothers, this is a missed opportunity. In case of unification of our country, we can invest about 10 billion dollars in the first three years in Abkhazia and Samachablo. We had a discussion about this at the Economic Council session. Abkhazia can become the second Monaco. This is not an overestimation. Abkhazia has a chance to become the second Monaco and Sukhumi has a chance to become the second Monte Carlo," said Irakli Garibashvili.
