Eva Bochorishvili does not rule out slowdown of economic growth to 4% in 2020 and considers the specific factors:
“According to our base forecast, we expect the economy to grow at 4.7% this year. Our forecast is 4.7% by the next year, but there are several factors that can slow down economic growth to 4%, including: mitigation of monetary policy rate (i.e. if the interest rate will not does not decline in GEL) and parliamentary elections.
