In the context of the Georgia 2018 mission, the IMF indicated that growth in Georgia would remain strong in 2018 and should accelerate in the medium term, supported by structural reforms and infrastructure projects.
"According to the Fund's forecasts, Georgia will experience one of the highest economic growth rates in Eastern Europe and Central Asia in 2018-2023"
"Growth is expected to remain strong in 2018, risks to the outlook remain balanced, the budget deficit is expected to widen slightly due to higher oil prices and public investment. In the medium term, the implementation of Georgia's economic reforms should support stronger and more inclusive growth, promoting private investment, productivity and competitiveness. »
The Executive Director of the International Monetary Fund, Anthony De Lannoy assesses the situation positively "Georgia has made a lot of progress, things are going very well, the Fund is very satisfied with this and we will be happy to discuss new funding programmes for Georgia"
