Between euro integration and 'Singaporization'

Until recently, for nine-years, the Rose administration has been promoting very contradictory economic priorities. On the one hand, the Georgian leadership has signed an agreement on Euro Integration and on the other– at least verbally, President Saakashvili speculated a lot about the Singaporzation' of Georgia. All competent analysts in economic issues understand that Euro integration and Singaporization' cannot be achieved simultaneously, as one excludes another. So analysts can now express hope that when Ivanishvili comes to power and is appointed as PM, at last, the country will achieve a distinct and clear orientation on how to develop its economy to achieve the final result and increase the welfare of its population.
