Then there were around 600 000 people employed, in 2010 the figure was almost the same. In the 80th of 20th century when there were 5.4 mln people living in Georgia 2.2 mln were employed. According to official statistics now in Georgia live 4.4 mln whereas there are employed just over 600 000. As statistical department informs 56% are employed in big enterprises, 23% in medium size businesses and 20% in small businesses. People employed in small and medium size businesses produce only 15% of GDP, it should be mentioned however that in developed European countries biggest number of employees are in medium and small size businesses.
