Wednesday, 10 November, 2021

On November 10, 2021, ISET Policy Institute introduced ReforMeter, the platform designed as a Georgian Reform Progress Tracking System, one which critically informs beneficiaries and stakeholders about how the latest economic reforms are developing.

The hybrid event was held at the Grand Sheraton Metechi Palace and was opened by Peter A. Wiebler, Mission Director of USAID Georgia, Natalia Beruashvili, Chief of Party of the USAID Economic Governance Program, and Tamar Sulukhia, ISET’s Director.

Following the presentation of ReforMeter by the Lead Economist Giorgi Papava, the event continued with two panels discussions that included various esteemed speakers and representatives from several key public institutions.

The first panel, moderated by Tamar Sulukhia, focused on the implementation of select reforms (the Capital Market Development, Tax Dispute Resolution, and the Insolvency reforms). In which the distinguished panelists, representing the National Bank of Georgia, Parliament of Georgia, Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development, Ministry of Finance, and Ministry of Justice discussed the current position of these reforms and went on to stress the significance of the ReforMeter in Georgia’s economic agenda.

In the second panel, moderated by Natalia Beruashvili and comprised of the ReforMeter’s Steering Committee members – Sebastian Molineus (World Bank), Shane Rosenthal (Asian Development Bank), Giorgi Cherkezishvili (Investors Council), and Aleksi Aleksishvili (PMCG), the panelists considered Georgia’s past experiences of implementing economic reforms and outlined the numerous critical elements required to ensure adequate reform processes.

We sincerely believe that the ReforMeter will continue to prove useful to everybody interested in ongoing reforms in Georgia.
