Georgia's Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said he will step down as PM "before the new year" in order to work with NGOs, EUobserver reported.

According to Ivanishvili, he wants to transform Georgia into a "typically European" society and into a Dubai-type business hub between Europe and Asia.

"It's my dream. Deep down in my heart, I believe ... the possibility exists," he noted.

He said the plan is to purge Georgia of high-level corruption, to build decent schools, hospitals and roads and to attract foreign investors and tourists.

Ivanishvili took over as Prime Minister of Georgia following his victory in parliamentary elections in October 2012.
