Ana Dolidze focused on the social responsibility of the business sphere and thanked the businessmen for presenting concrete initiatives.
“The Project “Shoulder to Shoulder” means that the Armed Forces and society stand side by side with each other. The social responsibility of businesspeople is reflected in taking care of the people who sacrificed their own health and lives in devoted service of the country. The businessmen expressed a desire to employ the family members of wounded military service members. We welcome this initiative and thank them for that. I hope that more and more leaders from the business sphere will support the Armed Forces of Georgia,” said Ana Dolidze.

The businessmen also discussed the issues of providing support to the military and retraining them for future employment. Concluding a Memorandum of Cooperation with the MoD was also underlined at the meeting.
