All Georgia's political forces have expressed their concern about the recent slowing down of the country's economic activities. The issue has been touched upon by the representatives of the ruling team including the Prime Minister. Different opinions are being expressed. Almost everybody admits that there is no longer political pressure on businesses. However, administrative and management problems exist. Parliamentary Chairman, Davit Usupashvili, thinks that businesses have not realized that it is free from political pressure to the end. The former ruling United National Movement (UNM) members criticize the Georgian Dream coalition because of its unprofessional approaches. However, most of the ruling coalition representatives have optimistically evaluated the problems, calling them temporary and targeting at drastic improvement from the second year of their governance. PM Ivanishvili said the first year will be difficult, the second will improve and then it will be better and better. A lot depends on the investments brought into the country. The ruling party promises to accumulate around 2 billion USD investment by the end of the year but, some analysts challenge this figure. Almost half a year has passed since the Parliamentary Elections and figures are not encouraging so far. However, time will show the reality.
