The investments placed in this factory have been very significant, but no less significant is the contribution of our people. We Georgians are a very hard-working and qualified people. Recently, when we opened a pharmaceuticals plant, the investor told me that there was one woman in the plant who had finally returned to working in her profession after a 16-year break. He said that she was more valuable than all of the equipment and money which he had put into the facility.
