Summary:

This Selected Issues paper assesses macroeconomic and structural reforms in Georgia. The government’s reform package includes fiscal policy within a declining deficit path that intends to incentivize private investment, scaled-up public investment, improvement in government efficiency, and education reform. Based on modeling analysis, the implementation of this package will provide significant benefits to the economy. Over the long term, real GDP is estimated to be about 5 percent higher than in the baseline and—on a path toward the new equilibrium—annual growth about 0.7 percentage point higher over the medium term. The education reform will have sizable effects, but they will be evident only over the long term.
