Cooperation with the UN is one of the main lines of Georgia's state strategy, Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze told the country's National Radio on Monday while commenting on last week's meeting with Lance Clark, the new permanent UN representative to Georgia. According to the president, the UN lends Georgia considerable practical aid in the spheres related to economy, state management, ecology and healthcare. The financial resources of Georgia's UN Development Program office exceeded $16 million in the past three or four years, said Shevardnadze. Of the projects the UN implemented in Georgia, the most important in his opinion are those that deal with development of small and medium-sized business, the drive to combat corruption, and rehabilitation of the Tskhinvali region.
