The Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili says the adoption and observation of labour safety standards is an essential part of developing Georgia and turning it into a European country.

President Zurabishvili made remarks over the recent detention of the head of the GVK Hospitality construction company after 16-year-old Giorgi Beshkenadze died at a construction site on July 16. 

The company violating the labour safety is finally being punished in the country! It was exactly the violation of law that took the life of a 16-year-old adult”, Zurabishvili stated.

She also said that a total of 21 people have died on a workplace this year, most of them in construction sector, which is “unacceptable”
