We have a fairly high, 7% economic growth this year, and we also have positive and optimistic data in the direction of tourism, – Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said at the meeting of Government on Tuesday.
He explained that in the first quarter, more than 1,200,000 international travelers visited Georgia.
“Trade is also growing. In the first quarter, in January-March, a 25% increase in exports was recorded and amounted to $1.461 billion, which equaled the record volume of the first quarter,” the PM noted.
Garibashvili also stated that a large-scale state program for the development of cities and resorts is starting, which will last five years and have one billion GEL allocated to it from the budget.
