TBILISI, DFWatch – Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili claims that the Netherlands wants to copy Georgia’s health care system.

He said this during his annual speech to parliament on February 28.

Speaking about the system implemented in Georgia, he said new hospitals will be opened up, all equipped with modern technology.

“I promised you that we would have a hundred new hospitals and now we have 130 new hospitals,’ he said adding that he always wanted the health care system to be just like it is in the Netherlands, but ‘the Dutch expressed a desire to learn from us how to make hospital sector.’

Saakashvili is married to Dutch linguist Sandra Roelofs.
