Fiscal Balance in Georgia
Georgia - Fiscal BalanceGDP growth slowed markedly in Q3, after the economy rebounded and posted the strongest expansion in nearly a decade in Q2. The slowdown was chiefly driven by the reintroduction of some lockdown measures due to rising new Covid-19 cases, and as the base effect that flattered Q2’s result faded. That said, growth was sturdy overall, aided by still-upbeat export growth and improving labor market conditions, which should have shored up private spending. Turning to Q4, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and political uncertainty appear to be weighing on the economic backdrop. A spike in new Covid-19 cases in October, amid a flagging vaccination campaign, bodes ill for domestic activity in the quarter, while continued protests following the arrest of ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili have kept the risk of prolonged political instability elevated.
