Regional Economic Outlook

Caucasus and Central Asia: Is the Worst Over?


Fiscal accommodation and exchange rate adjustment have helped the Caucasus and Central Asia (CCA) mitigate the immediate impact from large and persistent external shocks, particularly the slump in commodity prices and weaker growth in key trading partners. Growth is starting to recover, but these shocks have left the region with increased fiscal, external, and financial sector vulnerabilities, along with less policy space and weaker medium-term prospects. Policies should continue to support growth in the near term where policy space is available, while aiming to reduce vulnerabilities over time, including through the formulation of credible multiyear fiscal plans, modernization of monetary policy frameworks, and strengthening of financial supervision. Structural transformation to diversify away from commodities and reduce reliance on remittances is needed to improve medium-term growth prospects, boost job creation, and avoid a deterioration in living standards.
