Georgia - Trade Balance

Available data already hints at the Covid-19 hit to the economy in Q1, which is set to accentuate even further in Q2. Economic activity contracted for the first time in over five years in March. The services sector particularly suffered as businesses closed due to the state of emergency, which has now been extended until 22 May. Similarly, merchandise exports collapsed in the same month as the spread of the coronavirus shuttered foreign demand, particularly from the U.S. and Russia. In late April, the government unveiled a six-phase plan to gradually reopen the economy over the next three months, and also presented a GEL 3.5 billion (around 6.0% of GDP) economic package aimed at supporting households and businesses deal with the pandemic’s impact. Moreover, on 1 May, the IMF approved a USD 200 million disbursement to help the country meet the urgent fiscal and external financing needs arising from the pandemic.
