Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia held a video conference with representatives of local analytical and research organisations to set goals for countering the economic crisis amid the COVID-19 pandemic, EDNews reports citing Trend News.

As reported, the measures implemented by the Georgian government to minimize the economic consequences of the coronavirus crisis were emphasized during the video conference.

These measures include subsidizing utility bills for citizens as well as deferring property and income tax payments for business.

Local analytical and research organisations have positively assessed the measures implemented by the government, noting their vision to combat economic challenges is largely similar, the government press office reported. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​

During the conference, participants discussed the country’s post-crisis economic policy.

The number of COVID-19 cases in Georgia has reached 214 on April 9.
