Other mines are leased, such as the manganese deposits of Tschiaturi and the Copper mines of Allaverdi, to a French company, and others in the district of Batouimi to a German company (Shuckert). Nationalisation has not been undertaken so energetically and consciously in the manufacturing industries, as in the mining and agricultural branches. Their present stage of development is little suited to State management. Only isolated undertakings among them have been nationalised, not because of the principle, but for special reasons.

In the state in which the country finds itself, private capital cannot be dispensed with in the establishment of such new branches. In this economic reconstruction a great part may be 4i
