A truly innovative and competitive Georgia means involving more girls and women.
Georgia’s economy grew by 2.7% in 2016, driven by construction and other non-tradables. Net exports declined mainly because of the slow adjustment of imports and continued decline in exports. Growth was supported primarily by investment that exceeded 30% of GDP in 2016. Meanwhile, tourism-related services performed well, as tourist arrivals from abroad increased significantly.
The project's objective is to empower citizens through social accountability interventions, to improve the delivery of and resource allocation of pre-school education services in targeted municipalities of Georgia.
Cryptocurrency mining has a major impact on electricity consumption. In Georgia, mining is surprisingly widespread, thanks to tax exemptions and low electricity prices, but intensive mining has turned Georgia from a net exporter to a net importer of electricity. Indeed, Georgia has had the fastest-growing electricity consumption per capita in all of ECA since 2009.
