In 2013 the country saw 3% economic growth. This is an acceptable figure for a developed country, but not for Georgia, which needs a much bigger economic growth indicator.

Switzerland, where GDP is 400 billion euro and GDP per capita is $45,000, 2% growth is a good indicator, whereas for Georgia where GDP is under 30 billion GEL and GDP per capita is $5,800, 3% economic growth is nothing.

According to the official data, Georgian economists think that this year the country will achieve 5-6% economic growth.
